Friday Finish and who i was making it for.

Hi friends!
Beautiful hot day!
I finished my lap quilt!
The sun was behind it so the out side pictures were not good!.
I have been saying i was going to give this to some one special.  Well my hair dresser is that some one, She has had a hard month, first her hubby was in the hospital and then she was in a car wreck.
When my mother was alive she would wash and set her hair for 5 dollars when other's were charging more because she new Mother was drawing a small check.  Later when my mother-in-law was in the nursing home she did her hair any time she asked for very little and some times free.
 so yesterday i went to get my hair cut and gave her the quilt!
She loved it!!!
She said she had never had a handmade quilt.
I am so glad she loved it.
It was made from fabric i won on aquiltingsheep Thank you Amy so much it is beautiful fabric, of course i added some fabric to it.
Have a great sewing day friends.
Quilt happy
