One of my very best friends is moving about a thousand miles away in order to be nearer her family. I'm going to miss her so much, and decided to make her a little lap quilt in memory of our many mornings of tea and heart-to-heart. The embroidered blocks are done in "redwork", only this time it's blue.
Here is the quilt:

And here are a couple of the embroidered blocks:



It's about 48" x 52", and tied with white pearl cotton.
I gave it to her a couple of days ago and she liked it very much.

I really like the color scheme.  Blue and white is one of my favorite color combinations and it's such a pretty way to commemorate time with your friend.
