You never know what you may find when you are doing some closet cleaning!
Late this summer I was surprised to stumble upon a baby quilt I had made over fourteen years ago.
You see, with each of my pregnancies I'd make sure I had two baby quilts ready - one for a boy and one for a girl. My last three babies were all girls so this quilt stayed tucked away in the closet with a fuzzy blanket and sheet that matched the colors of the quilt.
And there it stayed. And there it was forgotten. Until now.
Now I'm wondering what I should do with it since I do believe my childbearing years are over (and wouldn't that be a shock if they weren't! :::THUD:::) Perhaps I could add a border fabric which would allow me to put the cross stitch name and date block on the backside for a future grandson or maybe I could donate it to the new pregnancy resource center starting in our area to welcome a new baby? Hmmm, I think that if this quilt has waited fourteen years to be used it will be able to wait a little longer while I figure out what to do with it!
Thank you to all who have stopped by here to take a glimpse at my quilt. If you are a quilter and are interested in entering a quilt with its story OR if you'd love to browse through hundreds of beautiful quilts, please stop over to visit Amy at the Fall Blogger's Quilt Festival
Enjoy the last days of autumn!
