This fall I have been many times blessed in creating special projects for friends and family. Regrettably, I didn't catch a photo of a series of tote-bags created from childhood crib linens, but this week I wasn't about to miss out on featuring another heirloom project.
I received a call just a few weeks ago from a friend of a friend who lost her father this year. One of his crowning characteristics was his love of picking Pussy willow and Bittersweet. She had found some fabric and was anxious to have a quilt from it. Literally a one-of-a-kind piece, I drew this pattern on a piece of freezer paper, ironed it to a stack of fabrics and cut along the lines...the pattern, although a simple geometric will never be repeated in these proportions.
This time of year, with complete "Etsy Flurry", projects like these make it all worth while. Merry Christmas to all those who have loved, lost, and have "honor gifts" to give this season.
