We didn't pick an easy pattern. I guess we could have made it easier on ourselves, since it was their first quilt, but that would have been boring. Here is my original sketch.
This was a quilt with many prayers and a purpose. When my cousin Sarah called me excitedly saying, "let's make a family quilt, and let's make it for my mom," I can't tell you how excited I was. I was excited because I adore my aunt, and also, I knew I would get to spend lots of time with my cousins making it.
It turned out huge at about 94 by 95 inches. We wanted to make it to fit her bed exactly. It took three people to hold it up.
When I tried to hold it by myself, it was pretty hard!
There are also lots of cats in this quilt. She loves cats. They are in the sky, trees, and even in the windows of one of the houses. They are so cute. The only thing that could have made this quilt better would have been to include a free kitty with it. Thanks Heather Ross for making adorable kitty fabric.
Finally, here is the back. It was made from Anna Maria Horner cotton voile fabrics that I have been collecting over the past few years. This means the back of the quilt feels like butter.
Thanks for reading! I pray everyone has a prosperous new year, filled with many memories of love and happiness.
