We are heading to Boston tomorrow to see our daughter and her boyfriend. Boy are we going to have a car full of stuff…food, gifts, quilts. I am giving her 4 quilts. Three to hang on her walls and one to put on her bed. Here are the wall quilts…”Gossip Central,” “Nothing is Ever as it Seems,” and “Time Zones.”
I am also giving her a queen sized double wedding ring quilt that I made years ago (long before art quilting) and never used. She was pretty young when I made it and she always loved it. It is hand quilted and took about 1000 hours from beginning to end. She said she wanted it when she got married. I decided to give it to her now. It is called “Wedding Rings and White Roses.” I wore white roses in my hair when I was married. I remember her saying that the back of the quilt looked like a white on white quilt. I won Viewer’s Choice at a quilt show with this quilt.
I am thrilled that she still loves the quilt.
Thanks for reading. Now I have to pack.
