You remember when I first bought all this Marcia Derse fabric, at the Grand Rapids AQS quilt show?
I recently finished putting it together as a quilt.
And finally gifted it, to our first-born daughter, Krystal, and her husband, Dustin.
I think she liked it! She loves color.
And this one has lots of color and texture.
Texture is the spice of life, you know. You knew that, right?
I also made pillow shams, complete with invisible zippers, that I completely forgot to take pictures of. This quilting in secret, for gift giving, is for the birds…
Next time I go, to visit them, I’ll get a picture. And you know I’ll be going because I need to see this little grandbaby who is growing up way too fast. All ready.

And for all you quilters, I just want to share the latest blog post from my favorite quilt charity, Margaret’s Hope Chest. The work they do, with postpartum depression particularly, really tugs at my heart. If you find yourself looking for a new charity to work with, this one is doing some much needed work. Keep them in mind. They will be grateful.
