I am featuring one of my last quilts I managed to finish. I think all quilts are special but this one has it’s own story.
I have a dear friend that has always been fit, runs marathons, in triathlons, does sports of all kinds. The kind of person I have envied most of my life, (I have never been athletic). So back in March I asked her if she would like to barter. If she could get me on the path of fitness I would make her a quilt. (I have made her kids all a quilt) She was delighted with this bargain. So off she went to think of work-out routines and fitness circuits for me and I was off of thinking about patterns for her. She knew the fabric she wanted hers made out of, which made it even easier for me.
I did really well this spring and summer doing my circuits twice a week and walking like crazy. My longest walk was 10km. I was feeling good and beginning to see the difference. I didn’t loose a pound which was not my goal, but rather to have better endurance. Although getting fitter is not over, (and i have fallen off the band wagon lately). Her quilt is completed and I just love it and more importantly so does she. I used a combination of patterns and my own spin on patterns. I stippled the top and free motioned loopy daisies in the white border.
