My sister and I delivered this quilt to her granddaughter on her 10th birthday. Vanessa was so delighted with her grown-up quilt. Before I took it to the quilter, I realized I made it too long so I converted the bottom row into a pillow sham. I think its makes the whole package complete.
Compare her pose with the day she received her first quilt at age 4. To see her just as happy was all the "thank you" I needed.
