My nephew recently married a young lady from a farming community in our state. Lori Holt's book and selected patterns provided a unique opportunity to piece and quilt a special gift for them incorporating some of the timeless features of a rural lifestyle. "Forever Yes" is the theme for their wedding which I embroidered on one of the corner star blocks.
My brother-in-law has been a firefighter for many years and has collected shirts from all his jobs. My sister gave me those shirts last year to create this quilt for his birthday. It was so special to take part in that gift, and a joy to finish my first t-shirt quilt.
