"Say Cheese" Quilt from Helen

My friend Helen and I have many things in common. We share the same wedding anniversary. Helen & Phil and Bob & I were both married on September 5th. We are both registered dietitians. We met when Helen interned here in Morgantown in 2007. We both love to scrapbook. One of my favorite times was when we cropped together at Covenant School.

Last week she sent me this lovely quilt that she designed and made. Not only is it a beautiful combination of colors and materials (I love the birds nests and houses in the pattern), it's centered around a camera! Here's Helen and the center element:

The inscription says "Special for Cindy, from Helen in Ca, 9-2-11". This beautiful heirloom is now displayed on the wall in our bedroom.
