my sister just had a baby and I/We recently had the joy of presenting him with a quilt put together by many loving hands!
When she was about 4 months preggers, I put the word out to all the aunties, grandmas, friends asking if they'd like to make a quilt square for a quilt. I was amazed at the response! Especially since a lot of them hadn't done much sewing.
I ended up with 12 wonderfully creative squares!!
The squares getting ready to be sewn together.
Auntie Lorraine\s monkeys
my colorful spiderweb
Auntie Mavis' once favorite shirt - now a quilt sqare!
Cousin Sara's Barney
Cousin Jill's taggy square
Auntie Janet's animals
Auntie Sara's log cabins
Longitme friend Alyssa's Birdies
Great auntie Bernie's pony
(lifelong sew/knit/crochet/crafter,... still sewing with the shakiness of parkinsons!
a serious crafter never quits!)
Auntie Dana's hearts
and without even talking, mother and daughter both did hearts!
Our dearest mother's square, sewn in the hospital where she battles cancer.
I brought her all the materials and we had a sewing party!
(cousin Sara was there too, can you tell by the matching fabric?)
now for the edging...
here's momma at the baby shower
and little boy blue!
We love you baby Emmett!!
