Tick... another quilt is done!

Yes finally another quilt is finished! They are all coming together - woo hoo.

You have NO IDEA how many times I tried to take a photo of this quilt to really show off the fabrics. Several times during out the day in different places and I have given up so you will have to make do with this photo.

This is my youngest sons bed quilt. It may look simple - and yes it is but boy it seemed to take forever!



He asked me to quilt it as he wanted me to quilt it like this... When I gave it to him he said ' Mum this is so special because you did everything on this quilt for me'. Amazing how children notice those things.... I was going to get someone else to do the quilting...

I con't belief how much you are getting done, Sarah! The quilt does not look simple at all and how special of your boy to know that the time you put into it has been for him. He will feel very comfortable under it!

Love the quilt and great to hear that your efforts have not been lost on your son. I'm sure he will treasure this quilt always. I remember my elderly Grandmother stroking a quilt I hand quilted for her say "all those little stitches sewn just for me". She has since passed away and when I look at this quilt that I now have back I remember her words, as I'm sure you will do too.

Aww, so nice to hear that he loves his quilt. Such a nice boy. The colours are just right for a boy's quilt. Well done!

This is something I have been pondering lately. Obviously your son feels your love under his handmade quilt (sounds like an excellent kid!), but is there something tangible or real about that feeling he gets? Is handmade better because of the thoughts we think when we make it? I don't know. I just feel that it is.
