Do you ever wonder how your quilts will hold up to years of constant use, daily snuggles, and regular washing?
Last week I slept under (well, partially "under" since my feet were sticking out the bottom!) an old quilt that I made for my nephew when he was born.
I should mention that I started it when he was born, but he didn't get it right away! *LOL*
Here is a bad old photo of me with my nephew and son. He looks so happy about his quilt! And I look so young in my velour outfit ...and so much a red head (which regretfully, I never was!) LOL
Anyway...this same nephew is now a young man and has just completed his first solo flight...yes, in an airplane!
BY HIMSELF! So that tells you how old this quilt is.
This is a "classic Kathy" quilt...scrappy, fun, personalized and full of love. I was delighted to see that although it is quite faded and the binding is very worn, the hand embroidery is still holding up great! And the memories haven't faded one bit!
