A telephone for a friend

My friend Lynn had a birthday recently and since she is retired from the Bell Telephone Company, this 12" x 18" mini quilt from Lori Holt's alphabet book was the perfect gift for her.  The center is embroidered.  I had hoped to find small number buttons to add, but could not find those.  It is quilted with simple straight lines.  This project was a quick in between project and was not on the UFO list :-).

I have to admit that I squealed a little bit when this showed up in my email. I am also a Retired Bell person and love anything with a telephone on it, especially one of the "old" style.

Oh how fun Brenda! As soon as I bought Lori's book, I planned to make it for my friend's birthday...it was perfect :-). And, yes, those old style phones always make me smile....great memories or the 'olden days' LOL.
