The one that got away
I made this quilt in 2018. I didn't get it quilted till January of 2019 so this would have been the 1st Christmas for it to go on my bed. I love this quilt. It was so much fun to make and a delight to quilt. But, I gave it to my youngest son and DIL who only have one of my quilts while the other 5 kids have multiples.
This is so silly but I am mourning the loss of this quilt. It's not like I can't go see it if I want to (sigh) but I don't own it anymore. Does anyone else do this?
I have/had five quilts that I consider Christmas quilts and they picked out two. They were delighted. It will now be part of their Christmas traditions which should make me happy - ya know? It was so the right thing to do - share the wealth.
My husband said; "You could just make another one," And he's right. . . he's so right.
