I'm Home! That was a long trip, doing QuiltCon, Savannah, GA, and Empty Spools Seminars, in Pacifc Grove, California at the same time! But it was a very successful trip...More on that a bit later...
I came home filled with ideas!
I have several customer commission quilts to make, so I jumped right in...
Today, as we ( as a family) all sit around in our living room, lounging, and enjoying a lazy Saturday, I began a very special quilt for a very special little girl who passed away.
The family gave me all her PJ's to turn into a beautiful quilt. I thought long an hard on what I thought it should be. I have some thoughts, and I'm gathering from a beautiful book from the family that shared her small life's journey, from beginning to end. I am super touched that they would allow me to turn her life in to a beautiful quilt. I feel a load of love and power, by holding each of these fabrics...
To be continued....
This IS a very special project, looking forward to your future posts. BlessingsReplyDelete
Wow this is like a ministry, so special. Peace.ReplyDelete
What a lovely commission to make! I made one for a good friend a couple of years ago. Her daughter died on a very young age as well. With the stories she told me in mind I carefully started cutting all the clothes. It turned out to be such a wonderful quilt to make! Here are some pictures of the quilt I was allowed to make https://geckoboxes.blogspot.com/2015/10/quilt-made-out-of-baby-and-toddler.htmlReplyDelete
Enjoy making this one Victoria!
This is a journey in itself. May you be as blessed creating this quilt as the one you are making it for. I look forward to seeing this progress and also wondering if you use some stabilizer on those knits.ReplyDelete
Hope to see it when you finishReplyDelete
Oh my, what a special project. I am sure your heart will guide you into making something spectacularly special.ReplyDelete
