Crazy Quilted Eyeglass Case for a Friend

I spent the day making this eye glass case for a Dear Friend who just had some major surgery.

Today is her birthday so my gift will be a little late.........

but will be tucked in her mailbox early tomorrow morning to greet her :)

This is the silk I purchased in New York this week ~ the colors are so bright and cheerful and full of the promise of spring!

I went to Paron Fabric on 40Th Street but they had no silk under $29.99 a yard.

That was WAY over my budget so he kindly (as always ~ they are the best there!) sent me to another shop

on 39Th Street where I was able to get this for $10.00 a yard!

The silk ribbon is hand dyed from my sweety pie Pat Winter.

If you haven't been to her etsy shop lately ~ ya gotta go!

She is making the most breathtaking crazy quilted nightlights!
