Ada's graduation quilt
August 2017
My niece Sandy's daughter Ada graduated with a degree in nursing last year. I wanted to celebrate this new family nurse so I made this quilt for her. I copied the center design from the TV (via iPhone photo) and used her favorite colors. I searched for a humorous saying about nurses but all I found struck me as annoyingly sentimental drivel. My husband then reminded me of what he always says when I occasionally turn out to be useful, "Nobody should go anywhere without a nurse." Sweetly appreciative. This is paper-pieced lettering around the border. The rest of the border is embroidered monitor pattern... to go with her first nursing job: ICU.
