I’m so excited the main part of the quilt is together! Now it just needs a couple of strips around the edges and it’s done. I’m borrowing these quilt photos from Frederick, since he did such a good job… I like the second one because it includes the dimpled elbows of little miss intended recipient.
The quilt has not progressed much since the DCMQG meeting 9 days ago… now that it’s so big it’s gotten hard for me to work on it while holding the babe and so that leaves, well, just about never, for me to pick up the quilt and get it done. Not that I am wishing it to be any different. The fourth time around, we are well aware of how fleeting everything is. Vivian’s milestones keep flying by; one month, then two, then three. She smiles big toothless smiles and had her first laugh the other day, watching Evelyn jump up the stairs like a frog. She grabs at her toys and holds her head up high when rolled on her tummy. Sigh, where is my newborn nugget? Speaking of babies, another of mine has recently turned 11… how? Violet is already a teenager at heart and Evelyn is only a couple inches and a couple of pounds behind her. I’d wish for a pause button except that they are obviously so pleased with growing up.
Have I mentioned how much I love the back of a piece of patchwork? I’m sure I have..
