My very thoughtful Mr. Sunshine recently took me shopping and let me pick out some beautiful fabrics and patterns. Later, when my son-in-law saw it, he joked, “Here’s your gift, go put it together.” But Mr. Sunshine knows that he was giving me the gift of doing one of my favorite things. And I had such a super time “assembling” this little 13 x 17 inch quilt.
My mother understands that too. One day, many years ago, when I was first married and living far away from family, there came a big box in the mail. Inside I found fabric, yarn, needles, crochet hooks, hoops, a conglomeration of all sorts of stuff like that. Wonderful stuff. I was intrigued and went right to work with it. I grew up sewing, mostly clothes, but this started my passion for sewing to be creative. That gift made a big difference to my life and is treasured to this very day.
The pattern is by Jo Morton and the blocks are just 3 inches square.
It looks just great on my little quilt wall.
Thank you Mr. Sunshine!
