Amelia’s Quilt

23 Apr

I have some of the very best friends in the whole wide world.  We didn’t find out what Amelia was before she was born, so they threw her a “coming out” party a couple of weeks after she was born.  We needed lots of pink to invade our house!  In a stroke of genius, Claudia, Jessica, and Renee asked guests to bring some fabric in green, ivory and pink to form a large quilt for Amelia. 

What made the quilt most special was that my mom brought some dresses that I wore as a baby.  They used some of the fabric from the dresses in addition to all of the fabric that the guests brought. 

So on my birthday, they gave me the quilt.  Or they gave Amelia the quilt.  Well, it’s really for me anyway.  They want it to be dragged, washed, snuggled and loved until it’s literally falling apart.  I love my friends!!
