Pass it on

Several years ago I taught my BFF how to quilt.  She had been down to Florida and was only stopping by my house for a day or two.  But we managed to get the basics down and she has been a fantastic quilter ever since.

But you know the really best part about teaching someone how to quilt, is when that person passes it on to yet someone else.  And that is exactly what happened.  My friend taught a friend of hers and, as the saying goes, the beat goes on.

Except to say that these ladies have far exceeded my ability.  I have always been a simple quilter.  I like to make traditional style quilts in basic patterns.  But get a glimpse at what the next generation has already produced.
Now I want you to know that this lady, Michelle, designed and appliqued this quilt for my friend.  Each branch of the tree bears the names of my friends children and grandchildren. This is by a lady who has only been quilting for 2 or 3 years!  

So get busy people, and pass on your gifts.  It's amazing to see where the pathway will end up.

Happy Quilting!
