Why We Quilt


Meet Wade, he belongs to our small group friend, Nane; isn't he absolutely the cutest little guy?  When Nane and her husband were planning their trip to China this past spring to  adopt their son and bring Wade home, our group got busy quietly conspiring and contributing novelty fabrics toward a Picture Play quilt to present to our new little buddy. It was secretly pieced in one home and handed off for quilting; it made one more stop for binding and, before we knew it, our long awaited Sew Day  had arrived at Nane's barn! We were all about to burst with happy anticipation as the big presentation moment occurred... little did we know that our own excitement was about to be eclipsed by that of the recipient~ click here to view. The quilt has found it's forever home; with Wade, where it belongs. It's why we quilt.
Life is Good!
