Some days, I am pleasantly surprised by people. WAY back in the day, when I was in high school, a friend of mine got pregnant with a little girl. I, in my total lack of fear of the unknown, decided that I would make her a quilt. So I did, cutting out the pieces after drawing the shapes onto a fabric by tracing around cardboard templates. I hand-pieced and hand-quilted this crib sized quilt, just following an old black and white instructional book I'd checked out from the library.
Today, Candi posted a photo of the quilt to Facebook! Apparently, all three of her children have used this little quilt. I'm totally amazed! I never thought anyone would save one of the quilts I made for this long! I mean, this little thing is almost as old as I was when I made it. Seriously, I kind of choked up to see this quilt, the start of my journey into this obsession.
