Quilt Number Five for 2011

I just finished this quilt over the weekend and I love it! This is a retreat quilt that languished in my UFO pile for a couple of years. I think that was partly due to the fact that I had no idea what I was going to do with it. Then--voila--I knew this quilt's home. That seems to happen to me. I start a project, knowing that I really don't want to keep it, but with no idea what I will do with the finished item. Somehow the perfect recipient always seems to appear. The fabric for this quilt is April Cornell's "Portugal". A long-time friend of mine is half Portuguese and this is going to him for the times that he could use a little more sunshine in his life.
Next up--a quilt for my grandson Christopher and I have another quilt ready to sandwich and quilt that will be donated to a charity. I am having a great time this year and truly finishing things.
