    It was really hard to choose just one from this collection. So many of them stood out because of the personal connection to a child in the life of the maker … the love and thought and care stood out.

  • October 6, 2012 at 11:41 am

    I agree with Nellie. It was SO hard to choose only 5. I loved so many!! A friend asked me, not too long ago, if I could make a couple quilts for her friend. These gave me some good ideas. Thank you everyone!
