A quilt for my 80 year old aunt


Last week I have been working and working on my aunt's quilt, so that I had it finished by Monday, the day we were going to visit her in Egmond. On Sunday I worked till 11.30 pm, even having added a label.
Too bad I forgot to take a picture of the back, because I had added some blocks to it and of course a label. I'll take a picture of it the next time we visit my aunt.

Vorige week heb ik hard gewerkt aan de quilt voor mijn tante. Ik wilde hem helemaal af hebben voor maandag, toen we naar Egmond zijn gereisd om hem haar te geven voor haar 80e verjaardag. Zondag heb ik er tot ca. 23.30 uur aan gewerkt. Maar, toen was die ook helemaal af, met label en al! Helaas ben ik vergeten een foto van de achterkant te nemen, maar dat zal ik de volgende keer doen als we er zijn.

Your aunt looks so happy to be under her precious quilt you made and the tulips are so lovely! On my FIL's 80th birthday, the family made him a money tree and it had 80 $1 bills hanging from the branches. LOL! He loved it!
