Empty Nest Syndrome

Today this quilt went to its new home with Christine and Joel.  There is a lot of scrunchy texture in the surface of the batik fabrics because the lines of quilting stitches are close together.  I'm so pleased with the way it turned out that if I hadn't intended it for them, I would have kept it!  When I sew, I stitch lots of love into the pieces because the recipients are on my mind.  Seeing a quilt I made a gift of is like visiting an old friend and it makes me smile.
