Leslie's Retirement Quilt

This past October a friend of mine and fellow quilter retired (lucky her) .
I have waited to post about the quilt we made her until after we gave it to her, I think she checks out my blog once and awhile.
Brenda and I made this quilt for Leslie because of coarse she was retiring but who thinks that a quilter would need another quilt. It is different when someone else makes it for you, it's that muh more special.

We started out with a pattern and left some of the squares as muslin so that the girls and guys we work with could sign it. It was great sharing the work with Brenda, she did the cutting and sewing and I did the sandwiching and quilting.
I added a Dr.Suess quote to the label which I thought was appropriate.
Leslie will be missed terribly, the only good thing about it is we are off the same weekend now!
