Good friends are..

Ages ago, I started stitching a sweet saying I came across and showed you only the beginning line.
 
 
 
Although I finished the embroidery months back, I wasn't sure how I wanted to frame it.  Thanks to all my time last week sewing with scraps, I had a light bulb moment in how to proceed with this project.
 
 
I grabbed my container of blue scraps and started piecing them together to make a scrappy border to frame the stitchery.  Then I  densely quilted straight lines onto the patchwork for extra texture.  The finishing touch? A simple applique  and a  special star shaped button from a lovely friend. 
 
 
Here's to all the stars in my life...
 
 
I'm linking up to Finish it up Friday with Amanda Jean at Crazy Mom Quilts!

  2. Very sweet and very true! I've seen the same quote with "angels" instead of friends and have always loved it.

  5. Awwwwwwwwwwww that's so pretty --- the perfect project to - hopefully - END winter with!! Yesterday it looked like spring was finally on it's way, but then in the evening we had what was almost a snow squall - it was difficult to see the road. BLECH - Old Man Winter is NOT done with us yet!

  7. That is a great quote. Especially applicable to military families like mine. My friends are scattered around the globe but I know they are there for me all the same. I love the blue scrappy frame. You did an amazing job and it is beautiful.
