I'm a finisher

I am great at starting things and bad at finishing things......until last month. I finished four baby quilts in February. Three were already started and the lavender quilt was started and finished in two days. I'm a little bit proud of myself. Maybe I'll become a finisher after all.

I started this quilt several years ago for a coworker's granddaughter that was born with vision problems. I put in my notice and told the grandma I would bring the quilt in when I finished it. She refused the quilt. She was mad because I was quitting. Just ridiculous,but one of the reasons I was glad to get out of that workplace! I had paper pieced the child's name so thought the quilt was a loss. I drug it out last month and covered the name with the doxie fabric and my granddaughter JoAnna volunteered to take the quilt. She's happy,I'm happy,but I hear that the grandma is still as crazy as ever. I pray that the child is having a happy life.

What a darling quilt... and I LOVE the backing fabric... too cute!

I'm sorry that the quilt didn't end up with the little girl for who it was intended... but I'm glad you're out of a bad work situation and have found a good home for it!

Consider yourself lucky, if she had taken the quilt she probably would have trashed it. Good for you on those finishes!
