I have been working on my cousin’s quilt. I chose the pattern from “Quilts + Love” by Mary Katherine Fons. Love this book! Love this pattern! I was going to change up the pattern as that is what we quilters do. Take something and rework it. In my case I sometimes rework it and it does not work. So, I love Mary’s quilt, I want my quilt to work, so I followed Mary’s advise! Who knew I could do that. I was going to add all the different scraps that came from my Aunt’s stash, but thank goodness Mary was looking over my shoulder and gently guided me away from making a gigantic error in material selection.
I have paired it back to the red and blue scraps. Phew! Mistake avoided! This is going to be so wonderful!
On a personal note, last week was very difficult. It would have been our 33rd anniversary. Rob took such joy in life and would have loved seeing our new grandson. He would have celebrated as our youngest granddaughter had prunes for the first time. And cheered as our eldest granddaughter slid onto the toilet by herself, no stool required. They are growing so fast and he is missing it. And they are missing him, his fun and his wisdom, and his love.
