wise words from Honest Abe

"When I do good, I feel good..." - Abraham Lincoln

I heard about a family in my area who are expecting their first baby very soon. They are new to our country and don't speak any English. They are far from family and friends with very few resources and no baby gear for their first son.

I had some fabric that was given to me by a friend, and I made this quilt for the little baby boy that is soon to be born.

It really is true that you love those you serve. It's interesting how you have to at least begin the service first before you start to feel the love. I poured into this little quilt all the good wishes and tender feelings I had while working on it. I have no idea who this little guy is, or who his parents are, but I hope that good fortune and blessings follow them throughout their lives.


  1. It's beautiful, Amy--and your conclusions are correct. I have found these things to be true in my life also.

    Your corner is great, and mine do not turn out that well. I know I have either missed something or sewn too far somewhere, I don't know, but I still don't have them.

    Maybe you will get a webcam and download Skype and show me again. (please)
