A few days ago I got some older (August/September/1987) Threads magazines from our local library's used book room. In one of these at the end of the pages was an article with pictures of a quilt she made for her newborn daughter, to take to her new home 1976 or 77. As an unwed mother she was forced to give up her baby, but the Nuns in the mother's home taught her to sew enough to make both herself and the baby quilts alike. She shows a picture of it, with cream squares and smaller colored 9 squares, all edged and bound in green.
She said that she hoped her baby would grow up with this quilt, the social worker promised that it would go with the baby.
Wouldn't it be marvelous if that 30 something lady would be a member of this quilting forum?
This really did make me tear up on reading it.
