Both my mother and Erik's mother are quilters and my daughters come from several generations of quilters. (and yes, the buck stopped here.) I am very aware and appreciative of the time, effort and love poured into quilts. And as we embark on this global adventure, I am mindful to purchase locally-made, handmade and unique treasures for both girls as mementos of their journey.
I bought the letter quilt to hang in Amelia's room and the fruit quilt to hang in Alli's room. And I know that the girls won't have many clear memories of their time in Vietnam, so I am hopeful that items, like these quilts, along with photographs and stories are enough to spark their interest in learning more about this beautiful country.
