this was going to be a secret. but i decided that since it's my first attempt at craftiness in a very long time, support from precious bloggers would be fantastic.
on may 22 of last year, my parents lost their house to a fire. we recovered only a few pictures. in the house was a quilt i had made in 1994 while in a home economics class my freshmen year of high school. it was a child size quilt. absolutely beautiful. my mom loved it and it was something so special to me, as lots of time was put into the making of the quilt. i was so proud to give it to my parents.
so, i am making them a new quilt. my goal, to have it completed - the week of Christmas.
here are some snapshots of where i am so far.
