The View from Here :: Willow's Quilt

Willow's Quilt


We were given a box of sewing things back in the Summer and there were 180 (or so) pre-cut polyester squares inside, obviously planned for a quilt.   It was all really nice polyester (it does exist!) that is soft and full of fun patterns.  Willow took to them and started sewing them together in the Autumn. She's now sewing all her strips together, all by hand. This girl is so opposite of me in many ways--I am no quilter! But, more power to her! This will be a treasure for many years.

Wow that's fantastic! A real labour of love and showing quiet persistence with such a long project. My girls are starting a dolls quilt but that is such a small project next to this. Well done Willow!

I'm really impressed, too. I'll admit that I prefer smaller projects, myself, but she is motivating me. :-)

How pretty. I started my first quilt at age 11, so she has a few years on me!

A Blessed Wilderness

It was just like being in heaven, being in there. In those days there was no road. The park was all a blessed wilderness. I have often thought what a wonderful people we would have been if we had wanted to keep it that way.
