For awhile now now I have been secretly working on a quilt for my husband's birthday and yesterday we gave it to him. I have shared some photos of this quilt before and I have to say I love the way it turned out.
Sometimes I would have part of it layed on the floor in my sewing room and Paul would walk in to talk to me so I had to act all casual and try not draw any attention to the sewing. It was so hard but I did it. Luckily Paul went away for a few days so that gave me a chance to get the binding sewn on and make some labels. ( Just realised I forgot to take a photo of the labels) I got the boys to write him a message. I'll share them next time.
Here it is in all its Glory. I have called this quilt "I LOVE AMERICA" It has a few fabrics I bought when we were there in 2013 and I like my quilts to have a bit of a story, it kind of makes them more special don't you think.
I have had many people ask me about the pattern for this quilt so I decided to write one up for those who would like to make this quilt for themselves,
Its $10 plus postage or I can email it to you in a PDF version as of tomorrow. Please email me if you are interested in this pattern or leave a comment and I can contact you.
A proud moment for me during the week, my son officially joined the Army Reserve, here he is in Hobart receiving his enlistment certificate.
I really hope he enjoys this experience and who knows it may lead to something more permanent in the future.
Have a wonderful weekend and I hope you find some sewing time. I'm heading to my sewing room right now.
