I cannot believe that I finished my quilt top today! I think it is the most beautiful quilt I have ever made. I have made some pretty quilts in my life, but I think this is the best one yet. Dork 1 gave me some insight into this the other day I would like to share, because it really is meaningful to me. She wondered if I really thought it was the most beautiful because I liked the quilt, or if it was because of who it is for. See, I usually quilt what I like. I don’t make them for anyone but me. I find that when I set out to make it for someone else, I don’t finish because it is not something I necessarily like because I am trying to make something they will like. So now, I make what I like, and as I work on it, I try to figure out who it should live with. But when I started this quilt, it was definitely for someone really special. I prayed over it before I started- that it would be something really special for him. And now it is done. One friend asked if I would still give it to him, since I like is so much. Of course I will! It was always his- start to finish!
Now I want to save up some money so I can fly out to give it to him!
