Of extreme proportions, I might add. Today I will feature one of the craftiest people I know. I was lucky enough to have two Moms in this lifetime and one of them just made me a quilt. How lucky is that? Rather than talk too much I’m going to start the show. I know there are a ton of pictures in this post but I wanted to do the ‘crafter’ justice. I’m happy to say that I will sleep under this for as long as I’m on this earth.
Even the scrappy border is amazing…
And here comes the Log Cabin with Attitude.
This particular square (below) contains some extra special love. My Aunt Sue and Aunt Karen made my Mom and Dad a quilt when they married back in 1976? This is a piece salvaged from that quilt that was falling apart in my possession. Jan had it and used bits of it all about this quilt she pieced together for me.
Sweet little snuggle model…not even on purpose he just needed something while I was in the midst of photographing each individual square. Made for a pretty cute photo.
And here she is in all her glory.
And from another angle
And here “she” is in all her glory. This is the woman behind the magic. We were hand stitching the border this particular night. And, I’m not going to lie to you, I did about a foot of the border on this king-size wonder, so I can’t say “we” without clearing things up.
What a perfect way to greet my brand new quilt, covering up my favorite babies on the planet.
Thank you for my treasure. I adore it.
Oh and stay tuned for more. I learned how to make these squares and I’m finally working on a project with these scraps for Sloane.
