Making this quilt was one of the best secrets I've ever kept! Our friend Susan was going through an incredibly rough season AND she had just found out she was moving far, far away. She and I are part of a very close group of friends and we put together a quilt with a hen pieced from fabric in the middle, and we included squares in the quilt that had a special message from each of us. We have a LOT of inside jokes in this group so the majority of the messages wouldn't make sense to anyone else - which is why it was so touching to her and is something she still cherishes to this day!
This picture that our friend Cristen snapped really says it all. Love you, Red!
