Some of My Best Friends are Quilts
I found a few pictures of quilts I have made over the years. It caused me to reminisce some and seeing the pictures put a smile on my face. By the time I have completed a quilt, it has become like a very dear friend. For those of you who quilt, you will understand what I mean. I have spent many, many hours, sometimes hundreds of very intimate hours with that quilt. I might have shed a few tears and perhaps even some blood in the process of designing, cutting, pinning, basting, and hand-quilting it. Some of these ‘friends’ I have kept, but most of them have been given away to someone I love. I always hope that the person who receives the quilt will realize how much I deeply care about them. I am glad I took pictures of the quilts (or the recipients did) so I can always remember them. Some of the pictures are attached below.

Not such a great picture of the quilt, but the best I have. This was a twin size kitty quilt presented to Dr. Yang for a raffle quilt. Dr. Yang has a wonderful healing non-profit ministry and was instrumental in my daughter's healing from a chronic illness (Lyme disease). Machine pieced, hand-quilted.
Gabriel's baby quilt presented 1998.
