Thanks to Diane, I got a blast from the past this week! The blast wasn’t actually Diane or the completely kids fabric she used, it was the pattern.Diane was one of our donation quilt fabric give a way this past year. And voila…she has made another quilt! It’s not your usual donation quilt but I still think it qualifies!

She writes;

I just thought I’d share with you what I’ve been doing on my “snow day”.  Here in South Carolina it’s not often we get off work or school for snow; so I’ve enjoyed my two days off.  I made this quilt from some left-over fabric from your charity give away last year.  While this quilt is not exactly a “charity quilt”, it is for a good cause.  My husband’s cousin has been doing foster care work for the past 5 or 6 years.  Last year she took in a baby girl that she got straight from the hospital.  This baby just celebrated her first birthday.  I don’t know how long she will be with this family or if/when she may be adopted; but I just wanted her to have something of her own to know what a “bundle of joy” she has been.  I do not feel very proficient at applique just yet, so I embroidered the words love, joy, and peace on the blocks.  Thanks again for your inspiration on your blog.  I love looking at all the pictures, trying great recipes, and seeing other crafts you are involved in.  The calendars you made for Christmas were adorable and I’m sure Grandma loved them.

Do you recognize this pattern? Well it goes WAY back to 2005 I think.  If you go to RJR’s website this free download is still available.

Really great job Diane – thanks for sharing that great story and the quilt { and THANKS for your kind comments too}.


p.s love the peek at the backing too!
