A friend at church is expecting and so I thought that the baby needed a quilt! Her precious baby boy is due in about 4 weeks and the baby shower was this past weekend. A while back she found out that I made quilts and enjoyed sewing and she mentioned casually how she has always wanted quilts for her children. She had no idea that I would remember that comment and when she opened her gift tears filled her eyes.
This is the first quilt that I have given as a gift to someone who wasn't family. I had no idea it would be received in the way it was. I mean, to me, this quilt wasn't a big deal. I just sewed some charm squares together and did some straight line quilting. But to the mommy-to-be it meant the world. It was such a great feeling that something I created brought that much joy to someone.
