my first quilt.
It is still making me smile and I've heard from its four-year-old recipient that it's magic. Here is the thank you I received from my best gal which really is better than the present:
Oh LISS! Best present EVER arrived today! We had a "long day at the
office" so to speak with Evan's legs, his bone scan process today took
FOREVER, so didn't get home until dinner time, and whoohooo! That is a
BEAutiful quilt lady! I love it. It is definitely magic. We have a thing
about certain blankets being magic around here (hard to explain, but
strangely, one of the only other blankets in the house deemed magic by all
of us is Adam's doggy blanket(nicknamed dogs) - that came from
you.....hmmm....all that witches brew we made down by the ditch...) anyhow,
Polly wrapped herself in it as soon as it was out of the box, and she
screamed..."MAMA! It's MAGIC!!!!! Just like DOGSSS!!!" It is a perfect
quilt, and I thank you so much for all of that time put into it for Polly
(um and me) to enjoy. Thanks Liss
I love the back too!
That hexagon flower was originally pieced by my great-grandmother on my dad's side and was a guide for my first attempt at free motion quilting. Not fabulous, but I'm glad I just jumped in.
I'm pretty sure happiness is a magic quilt you've made all by yourself and then given away.
