My sister, Valerie (#4), was the first of my siblings to have a baby. When she was pregnant, Suzanne (#3) made this baby quilt for her…
After Valerie got done with it, I think Suz’s kids might’ve actually used it. Then, later it got passed down to me. It was seven years old when I got it and I’ve had it ever since… 23 years now. I got so attached to it…I couldn’t bring myself to pass it on.
When it was new it was super thick. You could barely fold it because of how thick it was. Time (and the washer and dryer) have worn it almost completely out. Look at how many holes have made their way into it. The batting is coming out, the material is so faded… but it has been a favorite of mine for all these years.
I don’t know if Suzanne even knows what ever happened to it… but it found its home with me.
