Secret Project Revealed

 Our secret project was revealed today.

The recipient, our dear friend, Maxie, had her 80th birthday today.

Instead of having our Sweet Peas meeting at our home we all met at a local cafe for coffee and muffins and had a lovely time shared together.

Maxie was totally oblivious to her friends in our group collaborating to make this quilt for her.

We each made different blocks for the quilt then I pieced it together and Linda machine quilted it.

Maxie loves handbags and we called this quilt "Bags of Love".  She was a little overwhelmed but very appreciative that we should have made this for her.

The original pattern comes from Green Fairy Quilts and you can buy it here, if you are interested.

What a fun way to honor a friend. The handbag blocks are delightful. Did everyone sign their handbag block?
