I gave a quilt to my cousins yesterday. On the way back home she sent me this picture.
You can see the red and white backing showing through and she said, "It looks like a stained glass window." She seemed pleased.
I thought, " this was supposed to be a bed quilt. . . sigh"
I texted back, "if you safety pin a sheet on the back it will protect the quilt from the sunlight."
"Great idea," she said.
Once you give a quilt away it is no longer yours and you just have to be happy that the recipient wants to use it. But, if I'd known it was going up to a window I probably wouldn't have hand quilted it.
