Aimee's quilt

This quilt is for my best friend in Marysville, Aimee. Her favorite colors are blue and yellow. I appliqued the sunflower on. The back is a bright blue. It's not perfect. (The back has a few folds) But I think it turned out pretty cute!

I've been wanting to make Aimee a quilt for a long time but just never had the funds or time. But I finally made it. It's not quite a queen size but it's a good size for a couch.

Aimee is a wonderful friend. She and I have been friends since 7th grade. I could always tell her anything. And still can. I don't ever have to be worried if she will judge me or not. She will love me no matter what. We had our first boys in the same year. I was in her wedding. I just love her with all my heart.
