As a retirement gift for a great friend, I was asked to make a sunbonnet kitten out of 30s fabric. What a great idea! Of course my kitten had to be purple. Here she is before I sent her for a little embellishment by Sonja.
Sharon pieced twelve blocks together, and after quilting, here my kitten is again.
The embroidery that Sonja added for me is incredible. Of course my kitten has a few friends.
Together they make the sweetest quilt.
Gerry was very happy with her gift, commenting that no one had ever made her a quilt. As is the case with most quilters, no one thinks you would like one as a gift. I believe as a quilter we appreciate the gift knowing what love and time has gone into it.
