We took the quilt to a school to take pictures and the fire truck was there. So we thought "who doesn't love a fire truck?" My quilt holder felt really naughty standing so close to the truck. Anyway, we had fun. but I guess you had to be there. :DI had already made the top and was struggling to finish it. One the one hand, it was too dang cute and I loved it. One the other hand, it was a purposeless top and it had no home. I asked my girlfriend if she thought her sweet daughter (evil hellcat in a princess dress) would like the quilt. Would she tea party on it? Play on it? Look at picture books and nap on it? My girl friend Jill responded with a resounding "YES!". Oh good, I'll finish it with her mind.
I don't have kids of my own and love doting on, making friends with, the kids of my friends. I wait patiently for the grandkids I fear my adult step kids will never give me, but that doesn't stop me buying "grandkid stash". :D
This is also the 3rd quilt I've made with the 60 degree triangle I got over at Tabslot.. a lot of these pieces of fabric were the fold end of a fabric strip I used to cut triangles for this quilt and this one too..
Happy Birthday Syd.
