Back from the dead!

Boy have I been sick!
Dead sick!
Snow is officially on the ground here.
I seem to get really sick every time the seasons change.
So weird.

I finished my Scrap Vomit!!!!!!
This is a huge celebration for me because I lost momentum for a bit.
I may or may not have been avoiding my sewing room because of it.

The ironing, oh the ironing!
I truly don't know how Katy has made 4 of these already!

But I managed to power through
and I'm so happy I did!
This quilt means so much to me!
I love every single little 1.5" square that's in it.
Each piece has meaning or memory to it.

I'll be sending her out for proper quilting.
I wouldn't dare mess this one up myself.

I will treasure this quilt for all of my days!
Go herehere and here for more posts on this quilt.

    The quilt is amazing! I love how the hearts turned out too!

  2. Now you have inspired me. This is absolutely the best quilt I have every seen. ANd knowing that each little square is from something important makes it even more special.

  6. My husband said you should write a journal about this quilt and all the fabrics used and what they mean to you. Just sayin', as if you need one more thing to do. But, I had to show it to him because I think it and YOU are fabulous!
