A Forgotten Quilt

Yesterday before Son moved away, he (and we) had about five minutes to pop in and say goodbye to his grandparents. I was surprised to see this quilt. I recognized right away that I had made the quilt, but I had forgotten all about it. Usually I take pictures of all my quilts; somehow this one slipped through the picture-taking system, and in addition, I had never seen this quilt being used in the last umpteen years since I made it. I think I made it in about 2000 or 2001. It was early in my quilting career when I was still doing hand quilting.

I thought it was a rather gorgeous quilt! (she said humbly) It was fun to see it again and feel like it was new, at least to my eyes, after all these years.

Here is son saying goodbye to the grandparents... a couple hours later he was on a plane, moving away.

Ya did good Mom! He's happy, you're generally happy, Dad's sorta happy, grandp's are happy - be proud of your accomplishment! It was a big job, and successful!
