My paper is finally done! Hurray! I can move on with my life!
First, I want to say that the picture you are seeing is not a quilt of mine. It was done by Wendy, who posted an entry on her blog Snippets of a Quilter.
When I first saw this quilt, I immediately feel in love with it. Wendy has graciously given me permission to use it on my blog. The picture on the pattern does not do the quilt justice. And well, Wendy's quilt does! So thank you again Wendy for allowing me to show your beautiful work.
My mother, like most women in the late 50's, hand embroidered. She has a few pillow cases and serviettes that she's kept. She is not a quilter, however she has agreed to work with me on this quilt.
You see, my daughter has nothing made by my mother. Given that she just loves quilts, I thought it would be a great idea if my mother and I worked jointly on a quilt.
The pattern is called French Cottage Design by Crab-Apple Hill . It has two columns on each sides that are hand embroidered, which will be done by my mother. I shall do the sewing/piecing part. I think it will be wonderful that my daughter will have a quilt that has her grandmother's hand work.
Today, I shall attempt to get the embroidery panels done so that my mom can get working on it. She's been asking about it! My mother is coming down to stay with us for approximately a week in order to help me out. I'm sure she'll appreciate a bit of hand work while she takes care of my daughter.
Have a great day every one!
