My new grandbaby is due to arrive this weekend and I’m having a hard time being patient.
This is the quilt I made for them: machine-quilted, but it’s the first pieced quilt I’ve ever made – and some of the first sewing in 25 years.
I really had no idea how to properly piece a quilt, but last year I saw a quilting frame in my neighbour’s front room when I stopped to buy some fresh eggs. So I did what I never would have had the nerve to do in the city: I phoned her and asked for help.
She and her daughter invited me to their home and spent a morning teaching and helping me with this project. I will be forever grateful for country neighbours!
