Recently my son Stephen and daughter-in-law Emily stopped by to introduce us to our granddog Daisy.
Knowing my love for taking pictures, they thought this would be a good time to plan ahead for the Christmas family photo, and I couldn’t resist showing it off.
Emily was paging through one of my quilt magazines and showed me a quilt she would like to make. Of course, I was thrilled. All three of my boys have been exposed to quilting, but none have expressed a desire to make more than a pillow. Quiltmaker had sponsored a LRN2QLT day a couple years ago, and I had invited Emily and my youngest son Tim to the event. We provided the materials and showed a group of young adults how to make a simple pillowcase, patchwork pillow and rag quilt.
Emily has certainly found the way to my heart, and I’m excited to help her!
