When I knew my friend Emily was coming and bringing her 4 adorable girls, I got this crazy awesome idea to make a bright and colorful quilt. I became obsessed with shopping for modern/bright fabric on etsy. My friend Liz has made a few quilts and helped me plan it all out, cut out the squares, and piece them together. I was heading into crunch time, my machine broke, I shed a few tears, tried to fix it over the phone with my mom, and threw in the towel on my machine. My local friend Emily helped me a bunch, then I borrowed the machine of my friend Mary Ann down the street. Wowzers–it took a village to make this quilt! But I am pleased to say that the actual quilting was done all by myself in the wee hours of the night before Emily arrived into town with her girls. Hallelujah…I did it! I do LOVE it–so bright and colorful and happy. These images are in no particular order…
Look at mom juggling….
Below are not sisters, but girls who became dear friends over the few days spent together. My daughter and my friends daughter are the same age, and I will forever be grateful to this cutie for showing my girl that messy buns are cool! I’ve loved them and she never wanted to do them until now.
If you couldn’t tell, I got my 2 girls all fancied up also. They joined in for a few pics, and I got a few of the 2 of them.
A few moments were slightly hectic…(these were taken down the road from my home on a lot that will eventually have a home on it.
The baby is ALL done!
So the quilt…you like? I love!
