A Square from Vicki

In early January we lost a fellow quilter who was very loved in our group.  It has been very sad. Her best friend, Jan, of Quilting Revolution, shared some leftovers from a quilt she was working on with us at retreat.  We all made the same square together learning a few techniques.

I decided to use it with some Easter stuff I have. Just a little table topper. I figured I would find a piece of binding to sew around the perimeter.  When I returned home from retreat I was sitting in my new sewing room.  Lots of boxes of scraps and stuff that I still have to go through to organize.  This one box kept attracting my attention.  I opened it up and started looking through it.  Didn't I find a perfectly matched strip of 2 1/4 and just enough to go around the Vicki square.  Love it! I felt guided.  Who knows maybe Vicki stopped in for a visit and suggested it to my subconscious mind.  In any case, I am finished with it and am happy with the results.  Just beautiful! A great remembrance of a dear person.

I had a great time quilting it.
