Meet Michon. She is Miss February, on my year of quilts calendar. And yes, that is her baby quilt she is holding. And no, she won't let her mom get rid of it. It lives under or next to her pillow, even tho she was in driver's ed in 2003. About
18 or 19 years ago, she received a Mother Goose baby quilt. It was a print panel
that I hand quilted at that time. Back then I wasn't graced with a picture of the baby and the quilt, that came later. I had no clue, until Christmas of 2002, when I opened my present, what the fate of that baby quilt was.
Appropiately, I got to make a graduation quilt for her, last May. She went off to college at the University of Minnesota, all grown up, and with a new quilt.
All that remains of that old baby quilt is where the quilting held it to the batt and the backing. As you can see the rest is gone, leaving a mesh like foundation of what was the front. I shake my head in amazement....you can see why making all those baby quilts isn't really a burden.
The second picture(where ever blogger puts it) is of the 3 M sisters. All three are holding the baby quilts that I made. Michon and Madelyn are only a couple of years apart in age. Litte Jaclyn came along later.
I'm glad to read you are enjoying the year of quilts calendar. Today I will do a thorough search for the camera, and if that doesn't work??? Well then I'll just have to tear the house apart!!*VBS*
