A Quilt for Cathy

Sorry my blog's been neglected for a while.  Two large trips, more trips and trying to find time to work on projects in between.  This one couldn't be blogged until it was gifted, so I had to keep my lips zipped.

Earlier this year, my dear friend Cathy lost her dad.  They were very close, and I wanted to make a quilt for her - I think of it as "Cathy's Quilt".  As soon as I heard the news, I started looking for a quick quilt, maybe using a jelly roll and found this free design.  It's called Bali Song, and can be found here at Hoffman Fabrics.

I finished the quilt top during a retreat several months ago, but quilted and bound it during the first week in July (sometimes deadlines make finished projects), so that I could take it with me and give it to her when we met up in Sisters, OR.  She loves it, and my only regret is not having a picture of the finished quilt (that's what happens when I hurry), but at least I have a picture of the top!
