Garden Party from Sew Preeti Quilts

I have a new finish - Garden Party.

Garden Party

But first the back story.
In 2015, I made this quilt - Terrace Garden and set it aside.

Terrace Garden


Some time later, Paul asked me for a quilt.
Me: For?
Paul: Chad's wife has a new baby.
Me: Boy or Girl?
Paul: Girl.
I showed him Terrace Garden and he approved.
Chad was appreciative and sent this picture.


Such cuteness!!!

And that is the best thank you for a quilter - send them a picture of the quilt with the recipient!!!



Six years passed. I met Chad and his wife at ...
