and here is another photo with Stella trying to see what is holding
The pattern is called Friendship Crossing by my friend Pat of Silver Thimble Quilt Co. I think I bought this kit way back in 2004 and finished the top a couple years later and then had it quilted and then it sat and now finally it's finished. Hooray! Just like fine wine--it needed some resting time.
The quilt now has a purpose too. A friend and former Starbucks co-worker of mine is moving to Germany with her husband and young son for 2 years while her husband works on his dissertation. In honor of her super sweet, wonderful personality and the fun and friendship of working together. I'm going to give this quilt to her. The colors remind me of Starbucks too. The endless green and white cups with red thrown in during Holiday. Hope they enjoy this quilt and it helps keep them warm in the upcoming winter.
I'll post the 2nd July UFO tomorrow.
