I finally got the Memory Quilt done that was commissioned 2 days before hubby fell. I normally don't make quilts for other people (for $$) for various reasons, but this gentleman was so persuasive and was so sweet, I couldn't say no. His MIL passed away and he wanted to have a quilt made for his wife in her memory. He said that he wanted his wife to cry when he gave it to her because he thought of it. He had it all planned out how he would present it to her, etc. How could I resist? Well, unfortunately, she found the receipt that he paid the deposit, so the cat was out of the bag. Yes, she did cry! But she really wanted to see it in the planning stages. She decided that she wanted it larger, a poem changed and a few of the pictures changed, so I made all the changes for her. In a way, it's a good thing she did find out as now, hopefully, she'll really be happy with it instead of thinking, I wish this or that was different. I'm going to just loopy-ti-loop quilt it with stars and I'll write in the names of the mother, her kids and grandkids randomly.
