Where do all the quilts go?

You know, I rarely see where the quilts end up after they leave my studio, so it was a nice surprise to get an email from a past customer with a photo and a heartwarming story. She lovingly made a quilt top when she found out she was to be a Grandma, but never having made a quilt before, got stuck with how to finish the thing! The quilt languished for a year before Grandma decided to get help.  In comes Wazoo to the rescue! I fixed  the top, squared it up, picked a border and backing, quilted it and added the binding and a label. Little Presto loves his quilt, and Grandma is a star!
Having my job is sometimes frustrating, but moments like this make it all worthwhile.
I added the fabric for the border, and quilted the quilt

Using Minkie for the back seemed the right choice for a soft baby quilt

Here is the quilt all finished

A bright, striped binding and a nice label

And the quilt is ready to be loved by a new generation.
