I’ve been working on a special quilt lately. In some ways, it looks like any other quilt I make; nine-patch blocks of random cotton calico all sewn together into a large top to be layered with batting and backing and quilted together on my long-arm machine. These photos show the simple, ordinary process of putting a quilt together.
Patch, by patch, row by row, a quilt block is created. Then it’s ironed and set aside to be added to a large pile of nine-patch blocks.
Just looking at this large pile of work excites me. And, knowing that this quilt is being made for a special little baby who will have brain surgery on July 8 to address seizure activity (up to 25 of them per day right now), brings me to tears. (It’s hard to sew, at times, when teardrops are falling on my stitching.)
Please pray for Juliette. I am.
