This is Such a Fun, Fun Quilt!!

My sweet friend Bev, pictured in the photos below, was asked by her brother, also in the photos below, to make a quilt out of the exotic shirts that he loves to wear but had gotten tired of - Ha! - he probably just wanted to buy new ones!!  LOL!!  Hmmmmmmm, is that one he has on a new one??

She asked if I would make a back for it and quilt it.  Well, how can one say no to that offer - AND she would pay me to do so!!  Yiks!!

Then the binding was my gift to her (well, and to me too because my favorite part of making a quilt is hand stitching the binding)!!  And to top it all off, I am working on a second one for her - she said she might keep the second one because she loved the first one so much!!  Isn't it wonderful to have such great friends??  :-))
