Sewing With Love

My latest quilting project is just over halfway complete, but I couldn't wait to post some photos. I've been a busy lady, piecing a small quilt for my sweetie. His basement retreat (bubba room, radio shack, computer center & electronic workshop) has a cozy corner just right for reading or a nap. I designed this twin quilt especially for Jerold and named it Perfect Place To Snooze.

The border is a light weight denim with chambray blue for the background. The reverse side, called Off Center, is one huge asymmetrical log cabin rectangle in red, cream and navy. This whole project was done using fabrics from my stash. I had a few squares left over to make a matching chair cushion for his oak office chair.

I'm off to start working out a machine quilting pattern to accentuate the blue background crosses. I really love to sew, but it's even more satisfying when I'm stitching with love.

Our lives are like quilts - bits and pieces, joy and sorrow, stitched with love.  ~Author Unknown
