So it has been long enough- the month of March was fruitful but also full of trial- I don't mean big tragic and life changing trial- I mean where has the time gone- between my husband being on call- school stuff- spring flooding into my basement I am glad to see March go. I did do some quilting though. Lets get on with the good stuff and stop the murmuring.
A wonderful family in our church ward moved in March and I wanted to make them a quilt that they could remember Connecticut. So I created a sampler quilt aptly named "Remember Connecticut". I chose blocks that I thought would have some meaning. It was fun to peruse through quilt block after quilt block pattern. I thought I would have until June to complete this project but they bought a new house and sold theirs, it happened so quickly it became a mad dash to the finish and here is what the end results were.
Scrappy Heart (LOVE)
Log Cabin (hearth and home)
State of Connecticut Block
Spools (she was a quilting friend)
Hill and Valley
This is the Back
As you can see one of the blocks I don't have a picture of it is called ocean waves. This quilt is scrappy and it was a joy to make and my friend loved it - I hope she always remembers the love that grew in Connecticut.
