I told you I would post a photo about a quilt I am making for an old family friend. I need help deciding how to quilt it. I am thinking I may just do some good old fashioned stitch in the ditch. What do you think?
The fabric in this quilt is from projects I have made and from projects the recipient had passed on to me. Krys P. has been a family friend for about 45 - 50 years. She was the wife of my fathers commanding officer when I was a little girl. She did a lot of sewing for her 2 girls when they were young. I have a feeling many of the fabrics were from things her girls proudly wore. Krys now has Macular Degeneration and will soon have to go to an assisted living facility. I had hoped the quilt would give her comfort when she has to leave her home. My mother lives in the same city as Krys and will take her the quilt this Christmas.
I look forward to hearing what you think.
