A friend of mine made two Trip Around the World quilts. She made a blue one for her son and a pink one for her daughter. The Trip Around the World pattern was a perfect choice for these two quilts. Her son is in the Navy and is stationed in Washington but, of course, travels also. Her daughter has spent some time traveling for work and pleasure and is moving to North Carolina. I don't know if these two young adults will ever travel completely around the world, but I do know that their quilts will provide warmth and comfort to them wherever they do go!!!
It is very difficult (at least it was for me) when one or more of your children moves far away from home. I can't even imagine what it was like for parents long ago. At least now days we have modern technology to help us keep in touch with our loved ones.
