What Friends are For

The long story behind this quilt is for someone else to tell, but the December meeting at my house of the gals known as The English Street Quilters was spent turning several yards of blue and gold cotton into this:

We started out with freshly washed cottons and a plan. Beth pressed, I cut, Swooze and Babs sewed their little hearts out, making rows. Once everything was cut I made the HSTs and then started assembling rows. We kept Beth on that iron the entire time! After only about three hours we had a finished top. I spent a day quilting it, and now Babs' husband will be curling up in his very own custom made quilt for Christmas.

Merry Christmas David! from all of the English Street Quilters, but especially from Babs!
