A quilt for my BFF.
I can’t tell you how hard it was to keep this quilt a secret, and she was such a good sport about it. Even when I hint-dropped that I had a “surprise,” she did not press me as she knew I would cave. Instantly. With only the slightest of provocation.
That’s what’s so great about her: she knows me better than I know myself, and quite often saves me from myself (especially when it comes to surprises). Not to mention the fact that she has crazy good thrift store karma. She is my lady luck of thrifting.
When she and I were at Bolt last week and she so casually picked out the perfect missing fabric to this quilt, I nearly blew the surprise. But I bit my tongue, turned bright red and let out a little squeal instead. Just a tiny one, because I wanted this to be a surprise that she would love. And I think it was, and I think she did.
I named it ‘dots and dashes,’ a reference to that secret code that only the bestest of friendships share…and also because there’s lots of dots and dashes all over it, hee!
Happy Birthday Sweet Girl (even tho we already celebrated it, but you can never get enough HBs, right?)
