A Gift is Given

One day last week, my brother's company had its Christmas party, and the quilt I made for him was given to the intended recipient. From the looks of the smiles, I would say that Lisa, the woman on the receiving end of this quilt, is one very happy quilt owner!

This picture shows my brother Mark with his boss, Lisa. Mark told me that she was really surprised by the gift and was very appreciative. She even has a use for it! Apparently the blanket she uses when she works in her home office is quite the tattered thing, so this will be put to immediate use keeping tootsies warm. Don't we quilters love to hear about a quilt being used? I was happy to hear that she would be using it. I told Mark to tell her to wash it, as it will get softer and cuddlier the more it's washed. It's made of t-shirts after all!

I am happy to have been a part of this gift-giving opportunity. It was fun quilt to work on and I enjoyed trying to imagine how the recipient would like it. I am glad she was pleased.

Happy Quilting, Friends!


  1. It is wonderful when recipients say they will use it. I love it when parents tell me their kids won't go anywhere without my quilt and they have to remember to pack it if they go overnight somewhere

  2. That is a very big smile she has.

  3. Such a sweet gift and obviously appreciated. Merry Christmas to you and your family!
