The last year has brought a lot of heartache to my family, but every once in a while I come across something that helps me recall good memories. This small quilt is one of them.
Kim moved in with her college roommate, Lisa. I stayed with Lisa's parents, Cindy and Ray. This was a wall quilt I had made in a workshop early in my quilting career and I sent it as a thank you gift, because the colors of this quilt EXACTLY matched my hosts' decor. It just belonged.
Kim and Lisa were like sisters, and last year we lost Lisa unexpectedly. Recently, during my annual Thanksgiving visit to Kim and her family, we had lunch with Cindy. I asked her to send me a couple of pictures of this quilt so I could document it here for posterity. I don't know if it still lives on a wall in her home, but Cindy did a great job, and included Sadie, Lisa's dog, for good measure.
I will never forget that momentous trip, and Sadie here will always remind me how welcoming Lisa's family was, and continue to be, and how much Lisa loved this dog.
