Simple Gifts and my sister's baby quilt arrived at their destination in Tennessee, delivered in hand by my brother and his wife. My brother lives in NC and drove a U-Haul with some furniture for the young couple's new home and a crib for the baby, doing a wild drive involving wrong turns through the mountains.
No harm done, and our nephew and his lovely wife loved the quilts, as you can see below. What a special talent we quilters possess, the ability to sew our love and care into the seams of a gift that will outlive us.
Here's are the expectant parents with the quilt I made, called Simple Gifts:
And, here with the quilt my sister made:
I'm already looking forward to a trip to Tennessee for a visit with these dear ones and their baby, who will be arriving on the scene in December.
