I have made and gifted at least half a dozen baby quilts over the past year or so. Some recipients showed appreciation, others not so much. I try not to pay much attention because I know we all show things differently and the spirit of the gift is the important thing. Last night my sons' high school soccer team stopped to eat after a game and I was near the coach. He asked if I had made the "blanket" I gave him and his wife for their new daughter last August. He said they used it constantly on the floor for the baby to play on. It's nice to know it is being used, not stuffed away somewhere. I told him I always tell my sons that a gift of a quilt is a permanent hug.
