I found this quilt. I started it in Indiana, after my first miscarriage. And then worked like a fiend to get it done for Elise. And then Isaac. After Isaac was born, I was just too pooped, but I figured I had a year before he could really use a blanket.
I didn’t realize I had finished as much as I had. I still have to finish (machine) quilting the purple border, and then I’ll do the yellow. Then finish the edges.
He’s really into blankets all of a sudden, so it’ll be perfect for this winter.
It’s sooooo not perfect. You know how the Amish make sure there’s one flaw in every quilt because only God is perfect? Well, there’s no doubt in any one’s mind that this is an entirely HUMAN quilt. But it’s filled with love and anticipation and warmth.
While I worked on it a bit this afternoon, dear darling Isaac watched the ABC song over and over and actually SANG along. 😀 He played on Daddy’s Kurzweil too. With the cymbals. It was quite a concert.
