I am ashamed to admit that it took me a minute to contemplate parting with those scraps, but now I'm glad I did so that I could share something of hers, hopefully something that my cousin and her husband will pass to their kids as an heirloom. I'm also ashamed to admit how much I began to really not enjoy making this, but that is how much I love her I guess!
Hated: Cutting the squares, sewing the binding (I machine stitched it), and jamming the thick parts through a machine that didn't want anything to do with it. And the length of time I spent on this project!
Loved: Connecting the pieces, making the sandwich, and sewing the quilting. Aside from the corner above, I did a decent job aligning seams.
OK, I guess it wasn't all bad. But this is my favorite part:
I hope they like it! Because they will be the only ones in the history of man possessing a smunch-made quilt!
