Three years ago I made a quilt for G. and S. for their wedding gift. Then their dog chewed it, and it took them 3 years to dare tell me. Of course I don't care - I am so delighted that they use it for real every day life. That is what I want everyone to do with the quilts and socks and sweaters and everything I make. So I brought some scraps with me this visit, and mended the quilt. The top is perfect, if I do say so myself, but I did not have a scrap of the backing fabric, so that has a noticeable patch. But, I think that adds to its charm . . .
