I have a friend whose son recently graduated from Marine boot camp. She is so proud of him. Now he is in more training and she will not have much contact with him for a while. This is going to be a real sacrifice for her because she's close to her son and will miss him. A lot.
As I was making this quilt, she came up in my spirit and I knew she was the one who needed this quilt. I believe it will give her a little extra comfort and a reminder that God knows exactly where her son is and will be watching over him.
Here it is before I started quilting it. I've had a lot of fun making this one. It just sort of "came together" as we went along.
The backing is this cheddar print, and since I had three blocks left over, I let them play around on the back.
Here's the beautiful Miss Ru yesterday at her doctor's appointment. She's not where she wants to be yet, but she is making steady improvement. Glory to God!
Of course I'm already playing with more blocks. My friend and fabric facilitator Deb, aka Wonky Girl, posted a while back about a quilt shop on ebay and the great deal she had won. Naturally I had to go and check it out and naturally I bought something. We won't talk about how much or about the second pass I made through there this week. Anyway. There was a really good buy on a lot of sample fabrics. These are not big pieces, but representative of different fabric lines to entice shop owners to purchase. I used my Go! cutter to cut a lot of tumblers and here they are on my design wall ready to sew. I love bargains, don't you?
I do hope you are staying out of trouble, but still having a lot of fun!
Hugs and kisses,
