Then and Now

I have started posting a photo of one of my quilts every day on Facebook and Instagram. Whew! I didn’t realize how many I had made. When I was working in research, the lab was filled with graduate students and postdocs. When I began quilting, I decided to make a baby quilt for any lab member who had a baby… Today’s post was this baby quilt. It was made from one ombre fabric and solid white.

for Elsa

Fredrik, who is now an assistant professor at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden, saw the post and sent me a photo of Elsa, now 11 with the quilt. So happy!

And I am thrilled to still be in contact with old lab mates through Facebook and Instagram.. they are scattered all over the world. Who knows, maybe Fredrik has started a trend. Let’s see if anyone else sends me an updated photo when I post their child’s quilt!
