Hope's Haven

Hope's Haven was the 2nd lap size quilt I made for one of my very best friends, Char.  After seeing my mom's quilt, she really wanted me to make her one.  So I did...but I surprised her with it on her birthday just 2 months after I finished my mom's.  Being a very new quilter, that was quite a feat! 

Anyway, she likes purple a lot and she had also mentioned her preference for the Log Cabin block in the sampler I'd done as my first quilt.

So......here's what I came up with.

Since I went with the Log Cabin Block I chose shades of browns as a complement.  My friend Char, sometimes goes by "Hope" (long inside joke/story there) and she has seen me through many many life struggles.  Someone I could always run to and lean on!  Hence, the name of her quilt...Hope's Haven. 

She loves the quilt and so does her cat!  I used to have a picture of her cat taking over her quilt but couldn't find it to post.  Anyway, glad to know it's getting some use.  ; )

Ok, so she sent me another.  Oh my, can't believe Angel is so big.  She was much smaller when she started taking over your quilt!  We CANNOT be getting that old that fast!
Sweet dreams, Angel!

  1. Heh Heh! Bratty Cat STILL tries to take over my quilt....I gave her FOUR blankets of her own - however, she still ends up curled up on top of the quilt, which is on top of ME every morning! Love my quilt!
