There are some days when it’s just so worth going to the mailbox.
Imagine my surprise when our mail delivery guy (an intrepid and friendly soul named Charlie) brought this smallish box to my door the other morning.
The address label was not one I recognized but when I opened the box, I knew exactly why that package had arrived at my door.
Inside was the sweetest quilt made of simple half-square triangle blocks in a color palette that immediately makes everyone who sees it go “Awwwww.”
This quilt was made by a Diane Lambert from Danville, Vermont, a woman I don’t believe I know. It is a contribution to the Parkinson’s Comfort Project.
The blocks are 4 inches finished which means they must have started life as 4 3/4 to 5-inch squares.
It was quilted just right, simple swirling circular shapes, and it must have gone through the washer and dryer because it has a wonderful softness to it that makes it snuggly.
Wow, if I keep talking this way, I’m going to have to go take a nap—or make a cup of tea.
I think I’ll vote for the tea.
Anyhow, I just wanted to share this wonderful gift to the Parkinson’s Comfort Project. I know that whoever receives this quilt will be delighted.
