Reunited with old friends

When I visited with David and Lisa in Seattle it was so nice to be reunited with quilts that Linda and I have given them over the years.

David and Lisa's son, Jackson was born in 2006 and we visited when he was still a baby and took this cowboy quilt with us a gift for him.  You can read more about the quilt here from my blog entry at the time.

It was so lovely to see it still being used around the home as were others.

This quilt had a real New Zealand touch.  It was made by Linda and she had called it Kiwiana Fusion.

She made it for me as a snuggle rug for my travels but David and Lisa were so taken with it I left it with them and it has become a regularly used household item.

The I Spy quilt is from my last visit with them in Dallas.

I wrote about it on my blog.

It is backed with polar fleece and very snuggly to use.  I was happy to be able to use it when I was there for this visit.

Sometimes you can give quilts to people and they want to put them away to keep but for me I get such a lot of pleasure to see items like this being used and was pleased to be reunited with them on this visit - thanks, David and Lisa.

Quilts, in my opinion, should be loved and used by the recipient. I don't understand "saving them" for special occasions. Isn't everyday life a special occasion?
