Happy Mother’s Day everyone!!! I hope you are all having a wonderful day with those you love. My day has honestly been pretty close to perfect!! I awoke to breakfast in bed made by my darlings, hubby and baby girl. Then as if God himself sent me a personal gift, Kira put herself down for a 2 1/2 hour nap. During that precious time I finally got to finish a quilt! And tonight, hubby is making my favorite for dinner, stuffed calamari!!! HEAVEN!! There is also one more thing that made today so special…
If any of you have been following my Facebook page you’ve seen the rainbow quilt I’ve been working on. It has been a joy since the first stitch and I love everything about it!!
It is bright, colorful and so full of life. Very different from all the other quilts I’ve made.
Just look at…I can’t stop!!
Here’s the back, which my dear friend Teri picked out for me. I wanted something yellow to represent the sun and this jumped out at her. It’s perfect!!
A sun burst batik, could it be better…I’m thinking no!!!
The binding fabric was also chosen for me and is the exact color of many a sunset in our back yard.
In order to really show off the fabrics I decided on simple line quilting (in the ditch).
This quilt perfectly expresses all the joy, happiness and excitement I’m feeling these days. And I can’t wait to give it to the owner but I’m going to have to wait about 4 1/2 more months…
Yes, that’s me and yes that’s Kira kissing my belly which is currently filled with her baby brother/sister.
The rainbow quilt wrapped around my almost 2 children!! Happy Mother’s Day to me!!!
I’ve waited and waited to share this news and I couldn’t be happier to share it with you today.
Maybe now that the cat is out of the bag I can get back to posting. All I’ve been working on is baby stuff.
Again Happy Mother’s Day!!!!
