Children's Quilts: Not So Simple
One of Ellen’s hobbies is quilt-making. She’s made five quilts for children and grandchildren of friends during the last several months.
A few months ago she made two for young sisters, daughters of a former co-worker who lives in New Hampshire. More recently she sent three to Washington State for grandchildren of a long-time friend.
I’ve never made a quilt. I might think it simple: Go to the barn, bring in some cotton-print feed sacks, wash them and cut them into squares, and sew them together into a quilt.
