When my niece Alexis graduated as valedictorian of her class, I made her this quilt to celebrate her accomplishments. Then I realized that of course she didn’t get there alone, her parents had quite a bit to do with how she turned out! So with the charm squares I had left over from her quilt, I devoted a little time to cutting, piecing and quilting a gift for her Mom and step Dad, too. (My brother.)
(It’s backed with a super-soft vintage sheet, perfect for couch naps!)
I hope that when Alexis goes off to college in the fall, her parents will feel one more connection to her through this quilt, made from the scraps of hers.
She is a daughter to be proud of, and that makes me proud of her parents, too! Think of this as a major award, Jim. ;)
