I was alone for Christmas 2005. I didn't feel like spending it with casual friends, and I didn't want to mope, so I gave myself a gift- three days and to make a quilt for ME. I love 1930's repros, and I had some originals, so I made this top. Then, I couldn't afford to have it custom quilted, so I put it away, and waited until I had my own frame. Last week, I finally quilted her and put her on the bed.
