|only a small piece of the beautiful mess i made on floor for four months|
|four blocks pieced together, draped over a curtain rod in my sewing room|
|hand-quilting is surprisingly very relaxing and i loved this part, possibly the most|
|my 3-yr-old took this photo!|
This was the most satisfying gift I've ever given - a gift where both the giver and the receiver felt the maximum pleasure possible. All of my worries about the color not being quite what I thought her style was, about the size and her bed, about the design, about whether she would appreciate it in the way I thought only another quilter could....all of that was nonsense. For every visitor we've had since Christmas, the quilt has come out. She finds ways of bringing into conversation. It makes me feel so good that my quilt was received in the same way it was created: with love.
|finished! queen sized quilt with a 10.5" drop|
