Back to Quilt Gallery

This is one of my Healthy Start clients, Laura, with her first quilt, which I got her started on. The piecing was entirely hand-done. She intended it to go to her baby daughter, but her husband (who was a Philipino orphan) wanted it so much (since he never had a special "blankie"), she gave it to him, and made her daughter a different one. Quilting helped her out of a deep boredom and postpartum depression; she got so involved in quilting her family pooled their funds and bought her a sewing machine for this past Christmas. She is now working on her 3rd and 4th quilts.
