Sometimes you feel like a nut.....

My bibs are sturdy. Before the first washing they tend to be a bit stiff with the batting and stitching. They do soften up quite nicely and I would think that the mom's I gave them to will be sick of them before they wear out....My great-nephew liked his bibs (or are they his baby brothers?) In any case, they were too much fun to waste on dribbled pureed peas....

History: Dally and Ralph Wedding Gift, May 1999

This was my first real attempt at a pieced quilt. 1999. Previously I had made some appliqued quilts, and I had the nerve to give them as gifts; but really I should have hidden them...... I believe this pattern is called Garden Trellis

I try to sign the quilt with something I have written that is meaningful and personal; this one is no exception, it reads:

May the warmth of love,
The piecing of life pleasures,
The weave of souls intertwined,
Comfort you, keep you and bring you joy.

9/2/08 I was reminded today that the wedding was actually in just took me a year to get this quilt done and present it at their open house; the inscription is dated for 99....thank you Dally!
