Here is its..finally completed and given..heheh....Well some of you know that I had been working on my sons quilt for 2 years..not that it should have taken me that long but on this one alot of love and emotion went into it..it is an oversized king quilt and yesterday at my Granddaughter Kaylee's birthday I presented it to my son (his birthday is Oct 2nd). He loved it..although he was as red as a beet..he is like his mother (a better giver than a receiver)...he called me last night and thanked me again for the quilt ..I had also given him a letter from my heart and asked him to wait and read it alone..which he did...I love my children so much it hurts sometimes and I figured this is probably the last large quilt I will ever make him so I wanted it to be special..he saw a quilt sample at Beyond the Needle one time when he came in to see me there..he said "Mom thats a really cool quilt" I wasn't going to do that BOM but changed my mind. hehehe..so I took on the BOM and that quilt traveled to Florida with me for 2 years..the blocks were done with Thangles so it was good to pack it up and take it with me to hotels and work on them there...ended up adding extra borders to make it big enough...I am so glad Josh loves it and that I have a son who gets it...he knows and understands how much time and love goes into making a quilt...his kids all have quilts from me and they are now using them..although yesterday Jess asked me to put labels on them so the girls wouldn't keep confusing whose is whose..hehehehe...I did give Kaylee a quilt yesterday for her birthday too but forgot to get a picture of course..heheheh...I have a few more of Josh's but thought I would post these..and yes I made matching pillowcases (2sets)..blessings
I am married to a wonderful man. I have 3 children and 3 stepchildren. My oldest son Billy, was killed in Iraq in Sept 2005 and watches over me with his Lord. My youngest son is a very fine young man with 3 children. He is a great dad. His girls come first. My daughter is autistic. She's as fun as any 8 year old, so what if she's 31. I have 3 grandchildren and 3 step grandchildren. I love quilting, machine embroidery, traveling and having fun. My goal each day is to make someone smile. I hope today that will be you!
