It's the first quilt I ever made, and it was definitely a learning process. I'd wanted to try my hand at quilting for some time, and when we moved here I had the happy fortune to meet P, a dear woman and accomplished quilter. She offered to teach me and opened her fabric stash to me, an incredibly generous gesture. So even though this quilt might not be the most technically perfect thing I've ever made, I think it's really pretty and like to meditate on the pattern. Moreso because it is infused with all sorts of memories of women's fellowship and friendly generosity.
Plus, it's nice to have something over the bed that won't knock you in the block in the event of an earthquake!
