One More in The Books

No, no – the project here at Whispering Pines has another day (or two, depending on the concrete delivery!) before that gets wrapped up. What is ‘in the books’ – signed, sealed and delivered – is Alexandra’s quilt.
You might recall back in May I talked about the tradition I’ve been carrying on about making each grandchild a bed quilt once they’ve outgrown their crib quilt. Over the years my time-line goal has changed from when they move into a ‘big bed’ to hopefully before they turn 7! Well, it was sweet Alexandra’s turn!
This is where we were when we left Ohio –

The fabric was purchased and the pattern had been chosen. By the time we were heading to the cabin to get ready for the Family Reunion, I had it cut out – which was a very good start! I even set up a little sewing corner at the Cabin to continue to make progress on it!

I finished up the squares in West Virginia, and started constructing it Oklahoma!

By the time we made it to Texas it was ready to get sandwiched. (Securing all three quilt layers before the actual quilting happens. Check out all those safety pins!)

Pretty thankful for that big table at the SOWER office!
Finally – it was time to do the actual quilting!

Man, that was a lot of straight(ish) lines!

Got it labeled,

and just a week after her 7th birthday this well traveled quilt that started in Ohio (then went to Vermont-West Virginia-Oklahoma-Texas) returned to Ohio!

I think it was a hit! It was a joy to make it for her and pray over all those stitches before I sent it on it’s way!

Next up is Taran – he turns seven in February.

Gulp. =) The clock is ticking……..
