Strawberries for Anna:
I made this quilt for my daughter's (from kindergarten on)
best friend's first baby.
I know I shared this quilt when I was making the blocks,
and I had one of the strawberry caps on upside down.
I almost left it with the upside-down top,
but realized I couldn't -
it was going to be gifted to a little one,
who would not meet her grandmother -
my friend and also a quilter,
who'd lost her battle with cancer just a couple of years before.
So, in my friend's honor, I corrected it,
as she would have if she'd made it herself, for her little grand-daughter.
* * * * * * *Sometimes after I've made a quilt from a pattern,
I'm over it, as in - been there, done that,
and never even consider making that pattern again.
I was hoping that would not be the case after I made the baby quilt to gift.
But this one is so cute, that I think I'll have to make another one,
this time for me to keep here at the homestead.
These are the fabrics that I originally chose when I got the pattern...
for making the quilt for myself -
Civil War reproduction pinks, reds, and greens.
I just don't have a background fabric that's not so bright-white-new looking.
Now this stack of fabrics is with the pattern,
added to the growing stack on the shelf of the 'someday' list.
(: My list of the 'someday' quilts sure is growing! :)
Does everyone have a waist-high stack (or mile-long list)
of someday quilts (or something) to create?
