My parents recently celebrated their 60th Wedding Anniversary! Such an accomplishment and we are all so proud of them! We had a wonderful celebration with close friends and family.
I wanted to make my parents something special and unique for their special anniversary and I knew a friend who did quilting. I’ve always wanted to learn how to hand quilt and so I approached her and asked her if she would teach me. She agreed and I was super excited, I was going to learn how to do quilting.
First thing!!!!! I have a lot more respect for all of you quilting ladies and gentlemen out there!!! I had no idea how much work went into it! LOL! However, I loved the final result and so did my parents and family and that made it all worth it!
As a thank you to my friend Marilyn who graciously put up with all my questions and who assisted me on how to cut the fabric and line it up as well as doing the 3 layer sandwich and then sewing the border, I made her this little thank you card.
