A secret gift revealed

I had a fun thing happen tonight! I had received a gift in the mail from an online friend, Nancy, and had made her one also. We arranged to wait until we both had them in the mail and open them together. We got on IM together and opened the gifts at the same time. It was such fun! I will show you her beautiful gifts she made me tomorrow.
Here you can see the quilt I made for her. I was inspired by the photo of her pinkeep during our SAL. The glass bowl she used to display her pinkeep resulted in this quilt.
This photo shows the metallic gold quilting thread that I used for this quilt which has been quilted by hand. I had this thread for a while now and this is the first quilt I used it on. It works very easily which I was concerned about and I loved the results. I will be using it more often in the future.

Hi Heidi,

It was fun "talking" with you on IM. The photos are beautiful, but the real thing is breathtaking! Your quilting is gorgeous, and I feel so fortunate to have one of your works of art.

Thank you so much again,
Nancy
