Miss L’s Quilt is Finished


I’m very happy to report that Miss L’s quilt has finally come to completion. Many, many hours, loads of stitches and lots of love went into the quilts creation. If you are curious about the journey it took from start to finish you may read about itย here, here and here.

With the quilt finally finished it was time to decide when and how she would receive it. I tossed around various options; then ultimately decided to give it to her before setting out for my Creating Free-Form Quilts retreat.

Plans were made with her mother to meet at a park. The “aledged”ย purpose was to enlist the assistance of my grandchildren to photograph what they thought were quilts meant for other people.

When I arrived at the park they were actively playing on the playground equipment. Once they discovered I was there they came running over to greet me.

The quilts were safely packed inside plastic bags secured with a fabric bow. Each quilt was carefully removed from its bag and stretched out on a bed sheet that had been placed on the grass. The sheet would protect the quilts from getting dirty.

My grandchildren, at this point, still had no idea they were the lucky recipients. As I snapped photo after photo I turned over one of the corners revealing a quilt label. The expression on their faces, as reality began to sink in, was priceless.

Of course each one of them was very excited to receive a quilt. There was one child that overwhelmingly expressed her satisfaction, and that was Miss L. I know this because her mother shared with me the comment she made as they drove away. Miss L said,

I always hoped that Nana would make me a quilt. She makes such nice quilts. :o)

How special to hear those sweet words!
