Anyway, it was fun to study after not having seen it in awhile. This is a really special quilt, so we aren't sacrificing it to everyday use, but I wish we had a wall big enough to display it on!
This was such a fun project. I remember trying to capture each siblings personality. Micheal's character, for example, has big ears in a playful jibe towards his then big ears (his head must have grown some, because they don't seem big anymore).
My favorite part of all our quilting projects together, is when we would carry the nearly finished blanket into the living room and sit on the floor in front of the fire place and stitch the binding while we chatted and visited with Mrs. M. :) My only regret was that, with each stitcher on a side of the quilt, the job was always finished way to quickly. :)
This afternoon, I spent some time holed up in my room working on a colorful little quilted wall hanging inspired by Mrs. M. :o)
Until next time...
