  1. Wonderful story. Give me hope that someday I’ll do something with my mega-bin of scraps. When I do paw through the scraps I remember what quilts they were from. Great memories are in our scrap bins!

  2. Naomi, I love this story and thrilled you got Lea hooked! 😉 (or is it “squared”!?) I remember the first class you took right here in BOSTON! before you left for the “other” coast! (Just remember where it all started) I’m excited to see the finished piece! It’s wonderful seeing Lea too.

  3. I love it!

  4. Took me until my daughter was 28 to get her to try quilting. (“Why would I quilt when I have you?” – Barbara) Now she has a respectable stash and goes to Quilter’s Affair with me and my friends.

  5. Love this story! I made a crazy quilt back when my girls were very little and I was very new to quilting (such terrible angles). It was filled with fabrics from my high school days (the 60’s and 70’s) and my little girls’ clothes. I thought it truly ugly but perfect for a tent or a picnic or to be drug through the sandbox, etc. When downsizing for our move I must have mentioned that I was getting rid of this now very shabby piece of fabric and I was stunned at my daughters’ reactions. So I cut it in half and now each has a piece of this connection to their early history.

  6. What a great story! Something you will both look back on and smile about.

  7. Way to go Lea, and you to Naomi. It’s looking good.

  8. Love this. So fun to see others surprised by the joy of quilting

  9. Your story and pictures are beautiful! This lovely quilt is a legacy for your family with so many memories held in the fabric and the living bond with your daughter.

  10. I love this! This quilt will be special to you both. Can’t wait to see the finished product.
