There was one of these quilts there as a sample, that was clearly used and loved.
My initial hesitancy disappeared. I controlled myself from volunteering to put the quilt together - since this friend had done a great job in the past - and when I saw how much fun everyone had decorating their squares, I was hooked.
What a great gift that will give years of joy. But, just a warning if you decide to do this yourself - the marker will bleed through the fabric onto your table. Use some type of protection.
