Saying goodby to Susan....

So sad saying goodbye.
One of our quilt sisters is moving.
But don't worry...
we'll just have our next
quilt retreat in Colorado!

We all pitched in and made Susan the
"Chicken Quilt"
I can't believe I didn't get a close-up of the quilting.
Kathy Tree did this with her long arm machine
and it is BEAUTIFUL!

Chicken wire pattern on the black,
baby chicks on the red squares
and stippling on the yellow.

I almost cancelled the party...
so I could keep the quilt!

But I love Susan more than that.
But just barely.

Thank you all again for the BEAUTIFUL quilt and the great luncheon! I will always cherish my chickens : )
We are missing Lubbock, but are enjoying our new surroundings and time with family. Keep me posted on the plans for Colorado Bliss.
Can't wait to get settled so I can finish up some projects and start some new ones! : )
