I had so much fun making my Fashion and Food Quilt for my niece, Mary Frances. I was in regular contact with my sister, Jackie, during the entire process of making the quilt top, but I decided that I wanted the back to be a surprise to my sister. I had the dachshund face fabric printed up through Spoonflower in honor of Mary Frances’ puppy, Slinky.
I sent the quilt off on Monday, and it arrived two days later. I was able to watch Mary Frances open her belated birthday gift on Wednesday evening through FaceTime and see the reactions of both my niece and my sister. I’ll never forget seeing and hearing Mary Frances exclaim over each fabric I chose for the quilt.
Here’s a pic of Mary Frances snuggling up with her quilt:
