Maureen's Quilt

Here is a quilt I made for my friend Maureen.
The quilt is a simple strip quilt with lots of different pink fabrics. I got the idea from Amy's blog..(see Calico Cat under Quilt blogs in the right side of the blog). Amy did a great "green brick quilt" - See 2nd May for Amy's quilt.
Maureen loves pink, so I made it mainly in Pinks. Over the past 18 months we have had a lot of coffee together, and I just had to add in the black border with lots of coffee related pictures in it. Maureen will need this quilt, when she is sitting at home during those cold England afternoons and evenings.

Maureen was the first Mum I met from school. On the boys first day of school, Maureen met me at the school front desk, amd took Alexander and I to Alexander's classroom. Then drove Cameron and I up to Lower School to get him settled. Then it was off to the Wiener Cafe to meet some of the other school Mums.
Maureen has been a fabulous friend since we arrived 18 months ago. She has a heart of gold, and helps when ever, where ever she can!
I wanted to make Maureen a quilt to say "thank you", for all the advice she has given me, lifts in the car, laughter and stories shared, her honesty, and our ability to agree to disagree, and drink coffee afterwards! We have shared many coffee mornings over the past 18 months, and I will miss her greatly! If it wasn't for Maureen's friendshindness, I think my experience in Belrin could have been quite lonely!
Good Luck in England Maureen, I hope you, Steve, Bobby and Katie, all settle back in at home after your 4 years in Berlin. I wonder which city we will drink our next Milch Kaffee and Cappachino together! (((BIG HUGS))

I almost forgot... Enjoy Sydney - have a safe trip!

And if you know any of the birds that I just blogged - please let me know so that I can add that to the post... (I did not take notes... So I have quite a few "pretty birdy" pictures.)
