Well, the 100-Patch Quilt is home. In the home it was intended for. And, I am very at peace about the whole thing.
Here it is all wrapped up and ready for delivery. (NOTE: Another good use for selvedges.) Off to be loved in another place. And, its new owner does love it. She hadn’t actually seen it when she said she was uncertain about taking it. She had only heard about it.
The problem was the size. But, she has worked that out.
I was never offended. I knew the quilt was too small the minute it came out of the dryer. I probably knew before I put it in the dryer that it was too small, but it seemed big to me while I was quilting it. But, somehow I wanted it to work so badly that I had convinced myself that it was OK. And, it is OK. Now.
Anyway, all’s well that ends well. Thank you so much for your support and kind suggestions. It meant a lot to me in a fragile moment.
