Faithful Friends Quilt

This is a quilt I made for a long time friend who is in a sorority with me. I drew her name for Secret Sister. I always make a quilt for the last meeting of the year (which is in May) to present to my secret sis. Well, this friend has been dabbling with some quilting over the past years, but recently has decided this is something she really likes to do. It's so fun bringing little lost sheep into the quilter's fold, isn't it? :) Anyway, she saw a poster of mine that had all kinds of verses about friends and commented on how neat it would be to put those into a quilt. So I did! I made friendship stars for her to gather friends signatures and then when it's filled, I'll quilt it for her. She was happy with it, so that makes me happy. I liked the way it turned out, I might make a similar one for my family reunion this summer. Add different verses about family or something. But geez, it's only 3 weeks away and there is so much to do!
