Canadian Quilt Talk Episode 12 - Quilting - A Shared Tradition
We had a family of 5 for dinner a few days ago and it somehow turned into a quilter's show and tell and I did not start anything! One of the girls saw a soft minky quilt on the couch and the next thing you know, my son was suddenly hauling out all the quilts that I had made for him and his Babcia had made for him and the girls were thrilled. There is just something so heartwarming about your child or grand child showing a true appreciation for a handmade quilt. Here's his froggy quilt which is a round robin quilt, so each block is made by one of my dear friends from the In Stitches group back in Winnipeg. Very proud of this one. I miss them dearly since I moved away, so this one is so lovely to have as a reminder of our friendship.
Do you have a special quilt that you've made for a child? What's the story behind it? I'd love to hear it in the comments or send me an email! You could be the next winner of the Quilter's Corner!
