Happy Day!

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!

    Emily did finish her quilt and gave it to her mom for Christmas. Tim is still “working” on his!

  2. What I want to know is, did Tim and Emily ever finish their quilts that were started on LRN2QLT day? (only 1 of my kids did!)
