"Snapshots of Friends" Happy Hour finished!

"Snapshots of Friends" Happy Hour quilt is finished! I finished the binding yesterday at work and tonight I put the label on. I think my friend is truly going to love it and be totally shocked when I give it to her. When I was writing out the label I decide to call it "Snapshots of Friends" since that's part of the name of the quilt pattern. Everyone who knows this quilt though, calls it Happy Hour, from the book the pattern comes from. I ended up using a pink inner border and the red binding. The pink is on the back. It's a throw size, so the perfect quilt for curling up on the couch. I used the Chez Moi line and it has really grown on me as I made the purses and quilt. I have a pillowcase cut out and I'll try to get it finished to wrap the quilt in it. I don't know when I'll get a chance to give this to her, but I know she reads my blog, so whenever it is, I can't wait to hear if she likes it. Which wonderful friend receives this quilt?? Stay tuned... she hasn't received a friendship quilt from me yet.

I think it turned out great. It's an awesome fabric line. You know, I keep correcting myself when I call it Happy Hour.

The quilt is beautiful - I love the fabric line. It makes me think I need to try the pattern out of the Posh line - with the fabric we have left in the store. Good job!!! =Jen V
