Catching Up 1

It's been a while since I've been on here.

It's been a busy winter-spring. My husband and I loved everything about our Egyptian exchange daughter: her bright smile, her easy laughter, her optimistic view of life.

And then the week after she left us, in June, we commenced the paperwork for a divorce. It is final now, and I hope to move into my new house in 3 weeks. This quilt was made in May for a young graduate who volunteers at the radio station.

I was able to use some pieces of the young man's toddler and elementary-school clothes in the design. I also used some of my husband's old shirts (made by me).

I hope to make this pattern again.


  1. Beautiful quilt! Good luck on your new chapter in life.

  2. You can start right now making it again...for me! It's amazing! Please start it today! ;) I can't wait to visit in your new place. Good providence my friend.

  3. I am totally serious about you making me this quilt!
