I admit that I had the quilt top to this one done before Thanksgiving. I had intended on sending it the Friday before Thanksgiving but I never could get the time to quilt it. I took on way too many subbing jobs. With all the many discounts I provided customers this holiday season I really didn't have a choice. I felt bad Tuesday when she asked me how the progress on the quilt was going. It didn't help that it had rained all Saturday and the winds were so bad Sunday. As soon as Jakob was home he helped me drag my tables out, sawhorses and cardboard so I could pin the quilt before dark. I was never so thankful for his help.
|Tuesday Evening my husband helped me quilt it while we watched a movie he rented. I love all the little appliques from the shirts that I was able to add to the quilt. I wanted every saved memory that was possible to be included.|
|He had some great sports shirts, college shirts etc. I really loved the way it came together. The fabrics were incredible, even the backing is blue but a dusty blue and it all just worked.|
So remember how I said that I had contacted one friend and she didn't get back to me. Thursday we spent the day together. It was wonderful.. you'll have to read about it in the next post. Oh and the customer that ordered this quilt, she writes a blog and has offered to do a review on my item. You can follow her at Windy City Momma
I will let you know when her post goes up.
