QUILT OF WISHES

I have gathered squares.
I have send squares.
I have cut squares.
I have sown squares.
AND now.... I will send off the sewn squares for someone else to machine stitch.

Anything that is going on around here Mesa has to be part of. After close inspection of the sewn squares, she claimed ownership by plopping down not getting up until a treat enticed her away from the quilt. This is the back of the quilt.



Not the best picture of the top of the quilt. The center eight are special family squares. Since they were personalize, I felt they should have a special place on the quilt. I think I ended up with over 100+ quilt squares.

I had planned once all is quilted, bound and DONE.... I will explain some of the significance of the fabric and placement.

I am off to the scrapbook store to buy an album for all the wishes. My goal is to get this all done by the end of February. At least my part of the quilt..... I am not sure how long the quilter will take.

I am sorry to say that my planned visit to Utah has now been canceled. My brother and his wife have a little one in the hospital with an Upper Respiratory illness that is pretty contagious and their children at home are sick as well. They are canceling the trip and since it is their time share and time my kids were looking forward to spending with their kids our trip is off as well.
We may be staying in Phoenix the entire trip now. I don’t know. I have a lot of decisions to make in the next couple of hours as we were due to fly out of here tomorrow morning.
I am really sorry we won’t get to meet. Hopefully we will be in your neighborhood at some point very soon or even once the famous Tate arrives.

So exciting to get to this point! It is beautiful. Did you find the fabric you needed to (I think) bind it?
