This project was finished on the 22nd birthday of my youngest daughter. Birthdays of their children bring mothers back to the very day of their delivery: Leonore was born 2 months early, after I had spend 3 months in the hospital. Although she was so small, she did very well from the beginning:the pediatrician in charge wrote in her files: lively, lovely, smart. And she has proven to be all of it: she is 4th year medicine student, starting her intern in May! Time to celebrate!
The Harvest Quilt is finished and now hanging in our living room. As mentioned before, I bought this fabric during our last trip to the USA in October 2010 in Intercourse (PA) in Zook’s Fabric Store (http://zandsfabrics.com/). The quilt brings back the memories of Autumn in Pennsylvania, the colors of Indian Summer and the lovely time we spent with our friends in Pittsburgh, and in the B&B’s we visited in Addison, Hummelstown and Flemington.
