Lane's Project Linus Quilts



It was hard yesterday to turn in my Linus quilts. Each one, a piece of me. A memory, a technique, a practice. Rob made me this bit of a video to help me remember them. I'll show the three afghans sometime soon.

I dropped them off and looked like people we actually getting to work on their own projects. I hope these make somebody more comfortable.

Everybody take care and have a great rest of your Sunday.

What a great idea to video your Linus quilts before sending them off to their new homes! Great video of beautiful quilts...

How sad, we cannot watch the quilt video here in Germny because of the attached music. It has not been licenced here it seems. Can you post it without the music? Sigrid from Bonn/Germany

Beautiful! And who was that I just caught a glimpse of? It is hard sometimes to give up your work---but you know, this may become special to someone. Just think----100 years from now, they will look at one of your quilts and the person will tell the story of how that quilt got them through some really tough times, and the fact that they could hold something that someone had put so much into, made them happy! The fact that they didn't know you did not diminish the fact that it was made as a gift for them!

I don't know what touches me more-- that you put so much work into these or that Rob would know how hard it would be to let of them...and made a terrific video, even showing the quilting on the backside. I had a hard day at work, and I feel better just knowing that you two are out there, loving each other.
