family quilt

Every family needs a family quilt.

The kind that sits on your couch unassumingly adding to the cozy of the room. The kind that keeps you warm on stormy mornings and is just the right size for Mama and her babes to snuggle up under and watch Parent Trap.

Pieced together entirely out of scraps I had laying around my sewing cabinet. I had fun with this one that I had been planning for two years now. Glad I finally did it! Thanks to my pal Katie for drawing the wavy waves for me to quilt on and my buddies Angie and Becky for helping me to breathe and re-pin the whole thing when it bunched up! Meg and Ash were great consultants on the design of the waves as well. We took a vote. It was serious. GO team!

Craft nights are great like that.

Now to decide what to sew next month... (I promise I won't put everyone to work each month, but boy am I glad you guys were there!)
