    Red face That warm fuzzy feeling

    Anyone that makes quilts to give away or if you're commissioned to make something for a gift, knows that warm fuzzy feeling inside. This is why I quilt, truly. This was my most recent work - a birthday gift for an 11yr old named Cameron. Here are some pics sent from his mom in an email to me telling me how much he loved it. It's a t-shirt quilt, 54x65, with swirls and outlines, two-color binding, and warm and white cotton batting. It has two shirt backs that had signatures from his friends and the quilting label of course, positioned on the back. (For some reason I'm having a problem uploading pics from before, the only one cooperating with me is the one for the label) Oh, well. Enjoy....

    I love your quilt and it's obvious the new owner does too! I don't mean to be "snooping" but can't help but notice the beautiful chair and china cupboard. Very nice.

    All quilts should be loved like that. It certainly makes it worth the work and time when you see that smile.

    That quilt will be a treasure for him and perhaps someday he will pass it on to one of his kids...many, many years down the way however. lol
