Garden Path

My long-time friend, Leslie, recently retired after many years as programmer at the local college. She is looking forward to some winter days sipping tea and reading. What a perfect chance to gift her a quilt!

Once I finished piecing the top I had some strips and blocks left over. I decided to use one of the blocks for the label.

It was so exciting to see this quilt come together. I rarely, if ever, piece pastels, so it was fun to work in a different color palette.

She was completely wow'ed. Giving quilts is so heart-warming.
