When my daughter went off to college I was just learning how to do English paper piecing. I did not want to try out a big project, so I made the tumbling blocks, which reminded me of her baby blocks. When I found this stiriped piece in the exact colors and size I needed, it was easy to appliqué several of them on and hand quilt it, with lines indicating the shadows of the blocks. It became
MY BABY’S GONE AND LEFT ME.
Now, over 30 years later it hangs on my bathroom wall, where I can enjoy it daily. I just finished a rainbow quilt for her daughter, now entering the big world of high school. The title remains appropriate.
