As a quilter I expect to be a giver; I don't expect my quilts to come back to me.
This past week I had a quilt come home.
My grandma passed away last week after a good long run. It was not unexpected, but it was still hard. So today I dedicate this post to my grandma and "Raindrops and Roses".
It's ironic that this quilt got it's name from the song "My Favorite Things" because by the time I finished it, it definitely was not one of my favorite things. I made the same cutting error on about 200 pieces, despite saying the correct measurement over and over. Four and three quarters is not the same as four and three eighths, oddly enough! And that was just the beginning...
I finished this quilt in 2008. My quilting stitches are a lot smaller now than they were then. And this is the only quilt that I have made that doesn't have borders!
Despite my best efforts to get my Grandma to understand that quilts were made for using, I suspect this quilt ended up as a show piece of sorts. I hope she enjoyed it anyway.
