We arrived here on Sunday night and decided that not to wait until New Year’s eve to open our presents.
My son was very surprised and pleased with his Adirondack quilt. I was happy to see it on his bed.
A king size quilt just does not show on a queen size bed.
The original pattern was for a double bed and was square. I enlarged it to make it a king size rectangle by adding pieced and Seminole patchwork borders along with plain borders.
I named the quilt Adirondack Dreaming and printed the label with one of Tom’s pictures of the Adirondacks. I found the perfect sentiment to use for the label:
“You can kiss your family and friends good-bye and put miles between you, but at the same time you carry them with you in your heart, your mind…because you do not just live in a world but a world lives in you.”
Frederick Buechner, Telling the Truth
It seemed appropriate for someone who enjoyed the Adirondacks so much when he lived in upstate New York.
