A Labor of Love

As mentioned in an earlier post Ly spent a significant amount of 2008 working on a "secret project." It is now safe to reveal that it was a queen sized quilt for her parents bed in honor of their 25th (I mean 30th) wedding anniversary. This is the first quilt Ly has ever made and the hardest part of the whole ordeal was keeping it a secret from her family -- which she amazingly enough managed to do.

The final product:


Close up of the quilt - it is machine quilted "stitch in the ditch" style:


Ly insisted on testing out the quilt for "quality control" purposes before wrapping:

The quilt was a huge hit - Ly's parents were shocked! Here are the Bolig girls relaxing/sleeping under it after opening all the presents Christmas morning:
