So, I finished the red and white quilt and I can tell the end of the story. I worked at The Coca-Cola Company for 31 years. After my retirement party in May of 2011, I walked to my car with a co-worker, Theresa Senter. Theresa asked me if I would make her a red and white quilt.
In early January, I got an invitation to Theresa's retirement celebration. Theresa was celebrating 37 years at The Coca-Cola Company. I figured my chances of getting together with Theresa after the party were probably few and far between as people tend to go their separate ways when major life events occur. I thought I had to get busy if I was going to pull this one off... and I did... but I couldn't resist putting the red and white quilt on my bed before it left to its new home.
It looks pretty at home there, doesn't it? But Red & White Magic went to its new home last night. (I might just have to make another.)
