My First Lap quilt
by Evelyn Johnson
(Garland, Texas, USA)
My daughter's teacher's father had to be placed in a nursing home due to his failing health. The teacher confided that her mother was taking it hard.
After I got home I went through my scraps and piles of fabric to see if I could find something to cheer her up.
When I found the pieces that were wanted, I made my first lap quilt.
After I gave the lap quilt to the teacher she told me that her mother had been a quilter for many years and she hoped that she would be inspired to take up her favorite hobby again.
To date, I do not believe she has.
Hopefully soon the quilting bug will bite her again.
Until then she has something happy and full of love to get her through this hard time.
I loved making it!
PS: The father passed away a few short months later.
