My friend Pratima blogs over at firstname.lastname@example.org, and she is really a wonderfully talented quilter. She inspires me with her work and her generous heart and her exceptionally sweet nature. I was the lucky winner of her wall quilt that I call ‘Poppy’.Every morning I pass my Poppy quilt and it makes me smile. I especially need the extra smile today as I woke up in the middle of the night with ANOTHER flipping cold. It’s hard to do anything when one’s nose runs all day long. I did manage to get the binding on a baby quilt that was inspired by Pratima’s work.Little ‘Toasty’ because it was made with cotton batting which I then layered with a wool batt. The back piece is cotton flannel for the softest reversible finish! This piece is flying off to Strasbourg to live, where it will meet a new baby and hopefully serve as a mat to play on by a big brother! I wish that I could personally deliver it.
