Its week two of the quilt along over at I Have To Say. So far Im on target.
I cut up old clothes and all sorts of things for my quilt. I want this to be really personal with a few memory pieces for Mali as she'll have it for life. The rose bud fabric was a top I made when I was pregnant with my daughter, Malis mum. You get the picture.
The shirred piece towards the top was a blouse I wore when I was breastfeeding her.
The white hankies that are already joined to the left are from a curtain I made her when she was thirteen in our very first home we purchased so thats special too.
In case youre wondering why I didnt keep it as curtains, she set it alight with candles on the windowsill one day when I wasnt home. The boys did a wonderful job of putting it out while she panicked, worried more by the wrath she was going to incur for ruining the curtains. I had been working on them for two weeks not to mention the massive hankie search Id been on to find just the right pieces.
Glad the house didnt burn down.
I had to repaint but hey, I love painting.
The pieces to the right are already joined from when I started this quilt a while ago.
Mali is 5 months old and counting.
Winters coming too.
Off to the machine....
