Friends, I have been waiting for weeks to share this project! Here’s a hint…
I made a scrabble quilt for my friend! She returned this week from welcoming her newest grandson, and her “gramma quilt” was delivered yesterday! Yay! The process of this project was something else, let me tell you! You wouldn’t think coming up with words would be so challenging, then again, Scrabble is a thinking game, isn’t it?
I started out by cutting the letters apart, and putting them into piles. I wanted to see exactly what I had to work with.
I do wish that I had just cut off the blue edges around the letter blocks. On some of them it shows, others it doesn’t. I was not happy with the inconsistency but I left it. Forgiving friends are the best!
That adorable piggy fabric is one I used for my friend’s quilt that I made her a few years ago. I’ve got one tiny piece left and I will need to use it for something super special. I’ve found that when we use the special fabrics for the special people, it’s easier to let go of it.
Husband picked the name for this one. In the past I’ve used “grandma” in the name, but calling the quilt “Quirky” seemed just right. I used a super de duper soft flannel for the backing and binding. I just loved it so very much, it felt so cozy.
And would you look at that!
I also sent one of the little piggy mini’s to my friend. She loved it, too.
There just isn’t anything like a friend who completely “gets” it. This friend, Faith is one of the dearest people in my life. I am so thrilled for her grandma status, and all the perks she will enjoy!
ILYMTB, my friend.
