Look at what my dear friend made me for Christmas!...

dbfirewifeDecember 26, 2013

My dear friend from middle school pinned a photo of a similar quilt on Pinterest... I left a comment that I loved that quilt!... I got a big box from her a few days before Christmas and this more then beautiful rag quilt was in it!... My bedroom is painted Behr Torch Gold and she could not have chosen coordinating fabrics any better... she has never actually seen my bedroom as she lives several states away from me. She even made a quilt tag she sewed on the bottom that said "To My Beautiful Friend"... I love you, then her name....I just can't get over it!....

What a lovely collection of fabrics! Aren't those kinds of friends truly the 'best'??

Looks great in your room! I can only imagine how heavy a rag quilt of that size must be! Must have had the postman wondering what was in the box.

You have a wonderful friend. What a great gift! That's my kind of present! Although I have lots of quilts in the house, it would be so nice to receive one from a friend.
TFS.

Beautiful quilt and (obviously) a Beautiful friendship - her label wording is written from the heart.
I wanted to make a rag quilt this fall, but decided I didn't want to invest all that time and hard energy cutting the "rag". Your quilt now has put this back on my list. Your quilt is so sophisticated - I love it! Your bedroom has the perfect combination of hard and soft. The colors and fabrics are perfect.

What fabric did she use for the back?
Thanks so much for sharing this!
