on a hot summer day

... when my children were still babies
... we spent the day at a small auction not far from our home ...the quilt sat in a box and we'd not had a chance to examine it closely before the bidding began, but I was drawn to the colors that peeked from the top of the box After winning the sale we discovered that it was entirely hand pieced with the most even stitches throughout. ...after all these years of waiting patiently in a box, it was pulled out and ironed and spread out on the bed yesterday and only then did I remember that it was a hexagon quilt!
Begun by one ...to be finished and loved by another. Do you have something begun by one... that you've finished?
