Hi all,

Some time ago I asked about whether a gift was given at the dinner to the
hostess.
You told me that I didn't need to but I did anyway because they have been
very kind to my youngest daughter who loves their son.  My daughter also
told me that I have to make a 'curry' as my contribution. Now I am not a
good cook and have decided to cheat and get my Indian born cousin-in-law to
make one for me.

I decided to make the gift which you can see in the link below.
I hand embroidered the centre, machine sewed it together and hand quilted
it. I know, it should have been all done by hand or machine but it turn out
OK I think.

The six images  are the ones you are looking for.

They will love to have such a meaningful gift.

How lovely! and there's no reason at all why you can't mix hand and
machine work. I've even mixed hand and machine quilting! You do
whatever needs done.

How charming and delightful.  I'm sure yours hosts will be so pleased. The
center piece reminds me of the special box of candy that guests would bring;
Whitman's Sampler, maybe?  Lucky you to have an Indian born cousin-in-law.
That's not cheating; that is super brilliant.  Atta girl.  Polly

Di, who says it should have been all done by hand or machine??? Remember
that TANQP! <G> At any rate, I can't imagine anyone not being totally
delighted at receiving such a lovely table centerpiece! :)

Will last longer than a curry, too.

You did just fine.  And it's Finished.  ;-P

Thank you everyone for your compliments, I am still very new at embroidery
and I did enjoy doing this.
Quilting, patchwork and appliqu are still my favourites by far but I could
really get to love embroidery.

It's lovely and thoughtful- good on you!  I'm sure your hostess will be/was
delighted with both the quilt and the curry.

(I noticed PhotoBucket now has annoying pop-ups with sound much like
WebShots has.   Bummer.)
