Milan's Quilt

I made this quilt, using Save the Children fabric, for the grand daughter of a very dear friend. Julia Hicks has been the heart of the Southern Center for over 15 years. She keeps everybody in line and she keeps us going. When he was younger, Julia's son Kima, worked for us in the summers and on other occasions as needed. After he went away to college he would still stop by on his visits home to see how we were doing.

So when his girlfriend became pregnant, it was as if we were all expecting a new family member - and of course, I had to make a quilt for the new baby in our Southern Center family. I particularly liked this fabric because it shows children of all races and colors, something which is far from true with most novelty fabrics.
