Sam's quilt....

My friend, Sherri, from Alaska, made this beautiful quilt for our friend, Sam.
Sam loves lots and lots of color - so this quilt is perfect.
I love how Sherri always seems to be able to pair the right colors and prints together. 
It's a simple 1/2 square triangle quilt, but notice how she pieced the 4-patch block colors to create a larger
diamond shape.
Her fabric stash is phenomenal - she might have used the same print maybe twice in this quilt, but that's it.
I quilted a simple all-over swirl design.
 Sherri chose a Kaffe Fasset piece for the binding and a pretty red/white print for the backing.
Binding - finished!
 I have not met either Sherri or Sam in person, but I consider both of them my very good friends.
One day I will get to meet them.
We all live in different states, but we will make it happen! 
Sam was completely surprised by this gift -
didn't even see it coming!
Enjoy this beauty, Sam, and yes.....we both hugged it before we sent it to you.
