Just one word, but so heavy with meaning. This quilt was truly a labor of love.
It all started with an over-stuffed mailer of scraps, generously sent to me by Jolene at Blue Elephant Stitches. In the next year, I sorted the scraps, cut them into tiny 1.5" squares, organized them by color, then patiently stitched them into small colorful blocks. Time passed, and all of those tiny blocks were stitched together into a top and finally quilted up in a beautiful spiral design. And now with the last hand stitches in place on the binding, it has found a home on my couch.
Master W. turns it into Disneyland and drives his cars through quilty tunnels. We cuddle up underneath it at nap time each day. Little Miss C. looks so sweet as rolls onto her tummy and back again over the colorful squares. And everyone enjoys snuggling up underneath it for movie time.
We pour so much love into our quilts as we stitch them together, but the real love comes from years of playtime, snuggling and happy memories. I think this quilt is off to a great start.
