This blanket is donated in celebration of my cousin’s first birthday. Her name is Ella Rose Munson. I want her to always have a place in the Pacific Northwest no matter where life may take her.

Ella currently lives in California; so we only get to see her a couple times a year. For her first birthday it was a two week even while her mother was in Australia.

This is the very first rag quilt I have ever made. I made a duplicate one for Ella so she can carry it where ever she goes. When Ella visits Seattle during the holidays I plan on taking Ella to see the finished sculpture.
