Maggie's Quilt

Our wonderful manager, Maggie, is retiring soon.  Of course since our tradition is to give a quilt to the retiree, I had to come up with a plan.  The quilt design was to symbolize our love for her!  We had a nice dinner, a skit, and some dance numbers, all put on by my wonderful talented coworkers!

One of my coworkers is a professional photographer, hence the photos (and videos).  And one is an artistic cookie baker and she made "quilted" cookies to go with the theme!  It was a memorable night!
Here are a few photos of the quilting and quilt under construction.

I made a tutorial for the heart and chain blocks here, in case you want to make one like this.
