Ever since I started sewing this quilt I knew its destiny. Has that ever happened to you? I loved it very much and for a nanosecond thought about keeping it for myself (it was a selfish nanosecond). It was also at least two years as a UFO in my sewing room. Before its existence as a UFO it was in my stash (for 10 years) because I couldn't bring myself to cut it up. You may not be able to see it but there lovely pearly beads amidst the poinsettia blooms and leaves. This pattern was perfect in my opinion because I could fussy cut out the poinsettias. Pulled out my rotary cutter and voila!
As I was sewing the binding on I knew it wasn't mine. It belongs now to Jason & Christine, on our pastoral team and their family. I delivered it as an early Christmas present in November so that they could enjoy it through the Christmas season. What a great feeling to give quilts away. I love my hobby! Imagine, fulfilling my creative needs and spreading love around in the same package.
Here it is. I haven't named it, which is rare for me.
