As promised yesterday, here is the story about one of my dearest treasures. It was made for me by my 29 year old son Donovan for Christmas in 2002. I was surprised and completely stunned! I didn't even know he could sew. He took one beginning quilt class and jumped right in with this quilt. No nine patches for this guy!
First came the card.
Then the quilt. Five feet square, hand appliqued and machine quilted.
At this point I was trying to hold back the tears.
Then he showed me the label on the back and that's when I lost it. Yep, alligator tears.
It is an amazing quilt from a truly remarkable man.
Thank you Donovan!
