One of these quilts was one I made Sally when she was a toddler, Bowtie Bears by Debbie Mumm. So 'in' at the time. I loved it, and the colours are very typical of what I was making at the time (around 1998 or 99 I think).
I used to do a lot of hand quilting back then. I loved it, and I only knew how to machine quilt in the ditch which isn't too good for borders. So on this quilt I quilted flowers on stems all around the border (which I had forgotten about because they are so hard to see on this print, but more visible on the back... all the little lessons you learn on the way). Picture shows front and back
I had completely forgotten about it. It warmed my heart, I couldn't believe it, I just kept looking at this little hand print, thinking of my little smiley Sally Wags. It also always makes me feel sad, thinking of how quickly time has gone by (but lets not go there, it really does make me sad!)
I wish I had kept this up, what a great way to add to the 'specialness' of a quilt.
Have a great week,
