I was much relieved when Dad's lady friend called to say that she loved it. I mean she LOVED IT. Furthermore, everyone in her family was simply enthralled with the quilt. I was tickled when she called again, a couple of weeks later, to tell me *again* how much she loved it. :-)
I had made it with the intent of it being used as a lap quilt, but it was apparently so well received that it is now hanging in the foyer of the lady friend's home. :-)
In retrospect, I suppose that I could have simply slapped something together and since none of the people involved know how to sew, it would have looked amazing. But I can't do stuff like that. I want to do the best that I can under the situation. I was pleased with how it turned out and am very gratified that they liked it also.
(Adult) children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren made memory squares to be included. They were all *so* creatively made. I certainly had "challenge" blocks and angst about how to assemble all these disparate pieces. But in the end ... voila! it was done. :-)
Once a quilt is done, the NEXT project is always to make a webpage for it. Time spent doing the webpage is time that I'm not sewing ... and if I want to be sewing, I begrudge the webpage time. Most times the sewing wins and the webpage suffers. :-)
But now, I can finally say that the webpage for the memory quilt is DONE and active! woo hoo!
