Finally! Done with a quilt! I can't remember when I started this project, but it has been at least a year (though to give myself a break, a lot has happened in that year...like having a baby. And moving across an ocean).
I am so excited to have it done and hanging on the wall! As are all of my crafting attempts, this quilt is full of imperfections, but I am happy with it, nonetheless. :)
What a neat record of our lives and our homes this will be! The embroidery was done by the sewing master herself, Deborah (my mother-in-law), and reads: Home Sweet Army Home. She also embroidered the small stars with the names of all the Army posts we have lived: Ft. Benning, Ft. Riley, Ft. Gordon and Schofield Barracks.
I also love that I was able to make this quilt mostly from scraps so that it contains fabrics purchased in several of our home states.
Now I guess it's time to get on with finishing the baby quilt I made (I guess I should say "am making") for child thing #2. Any bets? Will I get it finished by his first birthday? We shall see...
