Quilts Are Like Pictures....

Quilts have a story to tell just like a picture can.

When I look at quilts I have made,
 they are like a picture bringing back so many memories.

I was looking at this quilt and it reminded me of days gone by.
Back to the time my daughter saw a picture of this in a quilt book and wanted a quilt like it.
The two of us went to Mormon Handicraft
 (when it was located at "This is the Place Monument")
and picked out the fabric.
I must say I was not excited or eager to stitch around all of the daisies and ladybugs pieces.
And I did say a few unkind words to this quilt during its construction. :-)

The first thing I thought of when I come across this quilt
is the time I spent at Huntsman Cancer Institute in the chair with a chemo drip.
I remember making copies of the
ladybug pieces and daisy pieces on wonder under while the chemo was dripping into my body.
( it could have been heat and bond or another brand, Its all wonder under to me)
This quilt reminds me of the wonderful people at Huntsman  that go out of their  way to
brighten your day and make you feel of worth.
Although the chemo is NO fun at all, I have very fond memories of
the goodness and kindness that I felt from the dear people there.

This quilt also reminds me of my sweet daughter that loves this quilt.
It brings laughter now when she talks about me giving this
quilt a piece of my mind more than once.
It has been finished for a few years now.
The memories are worth all of the unkind words toward it.
It was one of those projects that wouldn't let me put it in the
 cupboard.....to never be seen again.

I remember when you were working on this cute quilt! I love it! I found the Christmas Quilt from last summer that we were working on. I had somewhat the same feeling! LOL

PS. So happy the Huntsman treatment days are behind you!
