Share the Joy!

This is a quilt I made for my latest apprentice quilter. Long story, but I met a woman my age who had a daughter that had "always wanted to learn to quilt". After the mom was at my house and saw some of my quilts on the walls, table, beds, quilt rack, etc., she asked if I would be willing to teach her daughter. The mom admired a quilt I had made for myself from this same pattern, similar colors, but my borders are burgundy. When her daughter made a quilt top (nearly finished!), I had her double sew the squares so I could make her mom a wall quilt of her very own. I quilted it this afternoon and sewed the binding on. Daughter is going to finish it and give it to her for Christmas.

I have had the privilege of sharing the gift of quilting with several young (and middle-aged) ladies. It's exciting to see their sense of accomplishment. Go teach someone what you know!
