I know as soon as I post this photo, that its recipient will know who it’s for but half the fun of receiving a quilt is watching it come together. Particularly when the quilter is expedient. I have heard lots of stories in quilt workshops of children half grown before the quilt is received. Rest assured this little black duck is a finisher and a productive one at that.
I have to have my wits about me this year, I have two quilts of my own to finish, a 50th bday this year, and a 50th and a 40th next year! No time to procrastinate. I am: in one of the best age groups, my teenagers have blossomed into young beautiful women (semi independent), 23 years married and blissfully happy, professionally established and securely employed, I have more hobbies than I can muster and see early retirement in the horizon, my next gen in-laws are in the baby making years, what’s not to love! So, we can watch this space, for what I set out to share, patchwork and quilting. This quilt incorporates appliqué which I really love with some piecing. Plus my bet is …. it’s a boy! Happy Stitching!
