Oh, my, I can't believe I was surprised to see this quilt in the quilt-photos-to-organize folder! I made it for Sam, apparently quilt a while ago, because I'd totally forgotten making it. I love the bright colors, and the different size nine-patches.
As the oldest grandchild, he'll prolly always have more quilts than the others.
Truth be told, I don't know how many I've made for him!
It's made from older William Morris fabrics, and the block is Louisiana, a block I never seem to tire of making. Just laying them out side by side creates the most wonderful design! That baby Henry must be about ten years old by now. I've lost track of him and his parents.
And when I looked at the finished flimsy, one of the blocks didn't belong. The yellow that I'd used just didn't go with the subtlety of the other colors. I fussed and fumed and wondered if I could learn to live with it. Eventually, I took it out. This was perhaps four years ago. And I don't know whether I have enough of Milly's hand-dyes left to make a replacement block!
Now that's a story I'm not at all proud to tell. But I bet some of you might have similar confessions . . . . :-)
