This summer I made a quilt for the daughter of a cousin of mine.
The cousin had made me a quilt in 1988 when I was expecting my first child. I thought at the time it was one of the most special things that anyone has done for me. (I have always loved quilts)
We lost Myrtle my cousin to cancer in 2010. Her first granddaughter is due this month and her daughter is blue that her Mom isn't able to be there.
My first thought was to make her a quilt and keep the one her Mama made. (I love quilts and the selfish part of me liked this idea. ) I decided to send her both.
The first one is the one I made, not nearly as nice work as Myrtle's but it was made with love. The second and third photos are of Myrtle's she did such lovely work and had such a lovely heart.
