Quilting 2022 #2

This quilt is for a little girl yet to be born. Her mum is a close friend and as soon as she told me her daughter was expecting I thought of making a quilt ( it’s not like I need an excuse 🤗).

We met for coffee and she told me about it and we both spoke at the same time … Me saying “I’ll make her Grand baby a quilt” & She saying “Would you make my grand child a quilt”

Great minds do think alike and we hugged and laughed and reminisced about when we first met 28 years ago… The little girl who is now having a baby I met when she was 2 years old … leaning over a Hymn book in church standing in the pew … her parents not far away. She was reading it so avidly and turned the page so reverently.. I was fascinated just watching her….

It was only after she looked up and smiled at me that I leaned over to say hello and realized the book was upside down 🥰.

That story has been told to her so so many times and that was how I met her mum and how we became friends. 28 years on we meet at least once a month and catch up for coffee or lunch depending on how much time we both have to spare. We pick up conversations where we left off and our lives even though not entwined will always and forever be entwined.

Now that little girl is going to have a little girl of her own and the one thing this “Grand Aunty”can give her is a hug with a handmade quilt.

I need to also mention that I have used QAYG method of joining and I have to thank Kate as she’s the one who has taught me pretty much all I know in quilting and helps me all the time. She is my mentor and a super dooper friend 🥰 . I’m liking this method of joining the pieces as she promised me I would. THANK YOU KATE 💝

And so now I present…

  1. I found your post at last! I’m glad you’re getting on with QAYG, it makes those of us with sore joints so much happier when we have a way to quilt pieces without all the strain. Looking at the photos, I have another couple of ideas to pass on to you when you have the time, to help line things up more easily.
