Stitches and markers

Thanks for coming over from Amy's Quilt Festival

My little girl loves to throw the fabric around. But one day, rather than throw, she carried a piece around with her and made it hers. It was the pink and yellow flowers with a white background from Moda's Sunkissed line a few years ago.  It had to be hers. Instead of doing something simple, I made a quilt with more detail than I've ever done before.

 It reads better than I imagined.

 It turned out darling. The morning after I finished it, I put the quilt on the floor for her to see and she promptly drew on it with marker.
 I can love it all I want and spend enormous amounts of time on bias strips, applique, and quilting. But it is still just a quilt to loved and abused by a little girl who may never know how much love there is in each stitch.


  1. Very pretty! The quilting is amazing and I love the meandering vines.
