(Almost) Finished!

We've been passing an illness around our house...first my husband, then Sari, then me, now Mimi. Just one of those cold/allergy type things, but affecting each one just a little differently. Since Mimi was not feeling well today, I stayed home from church with her and I worked on my quilt while she watched TV. I'm happy to report that it's DONE! Ok, truthfully, it's done to the point of usable, and actually fully quilted on 1/4 of it, and I feel so accomplished. I LOVE it. It's soooo warm and snuggle-y, but best of all many of the people I love most in this world contributed to it. As I was quilting over Aunt Fanny's square, I thought, "here I am sewing over the same things she sewed." In some corny way, it is to me a physical representation of the knitting of two people together in friendship.
I will forever treasure this quilt, as it represents a real accomplishment in my handiwork that I would have never dreamed possible. And, it represents many of the friends God has so graciously brought into my life. I will think of them every time I look at their squares.

I'll post a picture after Sunday when we do our "reveal" for each other.
until tomorrow,
Pin It!

My hat is off too you. I've always wanted to quilt. But I never took the time to learn.

Since I never learned, I made sure I incorporated it into "school" for my girls. Two out the three stuck with it.

I can't wait to see your pictures.
