One Picture

They say a picture is worth a thousand words.

This picture is worth thousand hours? Ok, maybe not a thousand hours. My coworker showed me this picture a year ago of her daughter who would be a senior this spring and I said you could make her a quilt with her dance pictures. My friend gave me that look like yea right I don't quilt. A few weeks later I offered to make the quilt. Remember it was last summer when I said I would do this. When the new year rolled around we started to talk about the picture quilt.


My coworker brought me 20 pictures. I spent one week-end making the top. I had my LQS quilt it and it is awesome. I did it!!! I know Suzanne will treasure her keepsake.

Congratulations Suzanne.

I did get my thread holders finished and given as gifts. Here is a picture of them.

The two reds are my red mononchomatic challenge for May. Check it out over at Judy's Patchwork Times.

I am headed over to Sarah's at Confessions of a Fabric Addict to what everone else is doing on Whoop Whoop Friday.

Have a great week-end.
