Friends and quilting

One of my quilting friends is retiring at the end of June from her job as a high school principal and moving 300 miles away.  She plans to be a full time grandma to her 3 granddaughters, enjoy the beautiful Black Hills on the their motorcycle, and quilt.  We will all miss her a lot and wanted to send something with her to remind her of the friends she is leaving behind.  We gave this to her last night at a retirement party held to celebrate.

The Loralei panel was cut apart and reset into a long narrow wall hanging.  We are each writing a personal message on the back behind the block representing us.  I am the bottom gal in blue.  



  1. A clever and memorable gift.

  2. That is super cute! I'm sure she will treasure it. Hopefully I'll get to know her out here.
