Feature You Friday: Baby Quilt by Roxanne

Good morning StitchStealers!

We have a great story and a beautiful quilt to feature this Friday - from your fellow StitchStealer, Roxanne.  Roxanne's daughter is working and living far from home.  One day, Roxanne's daughter called for help finding a special baby shower present for a dear friend (who has been a great support being so far from her family).  Well, in Roxanne's family, that calls for a quilt. 

Usually, Roxanne's 90-year-old mother is the one who makes the quilts (for family AND the McDonald House charity -- wow!!).  This time, Roxanne decided to raid her mom's stash and try it on her own.  Two hurdles she had to overcome?  She had 10 days until the shower, and this was her first baby quilt!  Even with a full-time job, Roxanne finished THIS beautiful quilt (complete with the family tradition of satin binding) in 7 days, and it arrived just in time for the shower. 

Thanks for sharing a sweet story along with your quilt!

If any of you StitchStealers want to share YOUR creations - send a picture to the StitchSteals blog for consideration for a future Feature You Friday! If you have a blog, business or cause you'd like to let everyone know about, be sure to tell us about that too!

Have a wonderful weekend!
