Hi everyone. I am getting ready to go into work again, but thought I would share another past favorite of mine. This one was made for my very best friend Corina. Corina and I met in our senior year of high school and became fast friends. She had just moved to Maryland from Venezuela with her whole family. We went to college together and were best friends all through school. After graduation, she got a job working for the World Bank and moved back to Venezuela, met her husband and had a family. She lived there until 2006 when she moved back to the USA. While away, she had five kids. We kept in touch with emails, pics and through some of her family that still lived here, she visited Maryland a few times in that time period but we really did not get to spend time together until she moved to Texas. My family went to visit her and her family in the summer of 2006 in Mission Texas. We spent the week visiting different places in Texas and had a grand time! This is the quilt that I made for her to celebrate our 30 year friendship! She still is my best friend and I am so excited to say that she and her family are now US citizens! They fled Venezuela due to the horrible conditions there (don't get me started on that subject!). We are planning a girls week now for January and I can't wait. Hmmm....where should we go?
This is Corina and me in 2006
This is how I signed her quilt, see a close up at the top. The quilt was hand appliqued but machine quilted. Hope you enjoy!
