Since there was no baby on the way, I chose a cotton yarn in a nice, fresh, variegated green. As my blanket has been progressing, I have thought and wondered about the little one that might occupy it. It was nearing completion and I thought maybe it would just have to be tucked away on a shelf for awhile. But...
We recently got news that there will be a baby for my blanket! Now as I finish up the last inches, I can pray for the little one that, Lord willing, will be swaddled in it next August!

From the close up picture, you can see how badly worn much of the quilt was, but I found a section that was intact enough to frame. I just bought an inexpensive framed canvas art piece at the local discount store and used that as a frame to wrap and staple the quilt around. Now it is hanging on our newly painted wall.
I love that the framed piece of my grandmother's quilt hangs on our wall just feet away from the beautiful quilt our daughters created much more recently. Women, separated by 3 generations and 90 years, but sharing the gift of creativity and love of family!
