But there is a happy ending to this story, so I think it is worth telling.
I have made personal, memory quilts for all 3 of my daughters; each in their favorite colors, from scraps of cloth from clothing I made over all these years. And I made one for myself too!
|My personal size quilt|
|Pieces for Kathryn's quilt, sorry no photo of completed quilt!|
|Abi's (mostly) Blue quilt|
|Window "quilt" for Abi's nursery|
|Faith's kids on THE QUILT|
|Faith isn't the only one who enjoys the quilt!|
|Get all the scraps out and sort into piles... a grand mess!!|
|Several blocks and a peek at the back too! (unfinished edges)|
|See the red and cream colored piece in the center? It had not been checked for color fastness, and it RAN|
|Nothing I did would remove this pink blot!|
|This is the only pink spot on the front, it did come out almost all the way.|
The happy ending is this...
When Faith, my daughter, saw the whole quilt she said that Josiah would love to have it for his birthday and would not even notice the pinkness on the back (and the overall look of it turned out a bit too whimsical for Daniel anyway!) So Josiah's birthday gift is ready well ahead of time, I still have time to try again for a good "Daniel" quilt before Christmas and January!
