about the quilts you make and the people they go to, who aren't family? Or maybe even if they ARE family. Did they like the quilt? Did it make them happy? Will they use it? Does it even matter that I made it and gave it to them as a gift? And then, out of a clear blue sky on a frigid day in January, you open an email, and you have an answer *VBS*
The little gal in the picture is Maddie. She's a senior this year, and yes, I know, she looks waaaay too young to be a senior. The quilt is question is one I made for her nearly 18 years ago, when she was born. Recently she asked her mom if it could be sewed?, fixed in some way? Her mom snapped the picture and sent it to my DD#1, who had gifted the gift to Maddie. All I can do is shake my head in wonder, and smile with my heart. The quilt was loved. And that's the rest of the story.
