Goodbye Gift

I was able to give this gift to its recipient this weekend so now I can blog about it! My little boy’s first best friend is moving from town, all the way to England. I wanted to do something for their family and have a special way for the boys to say goodbye. This weekend we had a goodbye dinner for them, with cake, so that my son would consider it a party. Of course, all parties have presents right? I made this quilt for the family to remember their house by. I know that they really love their little house and will miss it. The house used to be a schoolhouse and is full of charm. This is a small lap size quilt with an appliqued square picturing their house. The other squares are scrappy log cabins. I used only scraps for this quilt, basing the color scheme around the colors of the house, sky, and lawn. They seemed to like it and I hope it brings them many happy memories. We will miss them!
