Quilt for an Adoptive Child

My mother-in-law is like Martha Stewart. Present her with a project and she'll not only master it, she'll teach you how to do it too. That goes for quilt-making. Last summer, she got it in her head that she was going to take a quilt-making class.

Now, we told our families not to go buying anything for our adoptive child just yet - or making us anything. The reason? We have no idea about the whens, hows, or ifs of our adoption. But you know, people just can't help themselves.

One day, I went out to the mailbox and found a parcel. Wrapped tightly inside was a surprise - a quilt. I immediately called her and thanked her. She assured me that this quilt is not for our adoptive child.

It's perfect for lying on the floor to create a comfortable padding for baby to lie on while we talk, play, cuddle and hang out. You don't fool me, mother-in-law. I know your tricks.
