And, we’re done. The “stitch in the ditch” lines were not as clean as I liked, it was just a little shy of an standard full/queen bedspread, and well, it’s not perfect for various other reasons. But, since when is perfection attained anyway?
I wish I had a picture of the quilt’s recipient Jodee with her gift, but I unfurled the blanket in the middle of an outdoor patio at the local Mexican restaurant during my lunch hour. The photo opps weren’t ideal. Maybe I’ll have her take a picture with it when she’s settled in her new digs. She’s been placed at a middle school in rural Mississippi teaching English and Math. And, she’s put out a plea for books and book suggestions for that range, as her school will likely have very little resources.
