In 2007 the librarian of the school Young Son and Daughter were attending retired. She had served for over 20 years. She knew every child in the school. And what they liked to read. And held special books just for them. She was the salvation of Young Son during a particularly difficult time and became a friend to us all.
How do you say thank you for that?
With a quilt, of course.
Machine pieced and hand quilted. It was delivered with love and a few tears washing it ready for use.
Even though this was only a few years ago, my quilting style has changed. It probably wouldn’t have poly batting in it now, but that was what I had at the time. Also, I would possibly put a bright binding on it, perhaps from one of the pinwheel fabrics, to give it a stronger frame. I don’t remember for sure, but I think the back was the same fabric as the wide border. The quilting and the colors–I love them still!
Husband saw our librarian around town a while back and she mentioned the quilt–still loved and appreciated. That is great to hear.
