So... today was awesome. Pulled out a huge double wedding ring and had my girls hold it over the balcony so it could be photographed. This house is an A frame and the balcony is SO going to be useful for future quilt photos! That part was cool... (will need to pull out the proper rod to hang it from in future.)
This quilt had been gifted to my parents on the occasion of their 50th anniversary. That has been one experience as a quilter that has been bitter sweet.
Gifting a quilt to an elderly relative has long term implications. Four quilts have found their way back to my hands.
Not that I wanted someone else to inherit them, but they are such a physical reminder of their previous owners.
