Back to Quilt Gallery

This is Caddie, one of my former Healthy Start clients -- a 14 year old mom with a darling little boy. She was unable to return to school due to lack of funds for a babysitter. Out of her boredom she eagerly took on quilting to occupy her time and fell in love with it. This quilt is her first -- designed by her and entirely hand-sewn. She was SO proud of her work -- and I of her!! The last I knew, she was busy making a full-size quilt. Her boyfriend, and father of the baby, got jealous of the time she was spending on the big quilt, and in spite cut up a bunch of it. However, I showed her how to replace the damaged pieces, and she kept right on going.
