Friends Quilt

I wanted to make something special for a friend and found the cutest free stitchery to start with. We met online and met in person one time. She decided that we were adopted sisters, so I thought this saying was perfect for the wall hanging. I wanted to keep it scrappy, so no fancy stitching or perfection;) I did not notice until I took the picture that I forgot an arm, lol. I always forget one thing on my quilts or put something upside down. I tend to design and add as I go, and wanted to fill the empty spaces. I put apples at the bottom, well they are supposed to be apples, not look like pumpkins. Then I added the leaves to give it all a fall look.

If you would like the free pattern that I used you can find it at AppleBerry Farm.

oooh that's very sweet! I too forget things- we have a framed needlepoint that's missing two stitches - good thing I don't dust it very often or it would drive me nuts!

If you hadn't pointed out that you left an arm off, I never would have known. Cute stitchery.
