I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday! My husband and I travelled to Indiana to spend Christmas with my family. It was really cold with no snow to enjoy but we still had a great time with both my immediate and extended families.
While I was home, I had the opportunity to give my cousin the quilt I’d made for her new baby. Well, semi-new. Baby Allie was actually born in July but I hadn’t been home to meet her yet so in my mind that still makes her new.
Everyone was really impressed that I had made the quilt by myself and couldn’t believe this was the first thing I’d quilted. My cousin and baby Allie really seemed to like it!
I told my cousin that I didn’t want this quilt to be folded up in the closet unused to keep it nice. I want baby Allie to be dragging it around the house and playing on it. Allie even got some play time on it that afternoon!
It was really neat seeing something I made being used and enjoyed by someone else and I’m sure this won’t be the last quilt that I make as a gift.
Hope you had a wonderful and safe holiday and a happy new year!
