I was looking through my photos tonight and came across these 2 of my Octagon Flowers. If you just saw these 2 photos, that would be the end of the story.
But you know... there is a story behind every quilt. And this quilt has a heart-warming story.
Was it really that long ago that "we" made this quilt? I knew he was growing up fast, but gosh, he really IS growing up fast! Just think - if he ever becomes a famous quilter - he will have these photos to document how early he got started at quilting... which is good because no-one would believe that he was pinning borders on when he was 3 if there wasn't a photo, right? And yup, he did that border all by himself - there is a piece of cardboard under the fabric so the pins don't go through the carpet in case you are wondering.
I REALLY need to get labels onto my quilts. Really, really.
It has been a really cold week... I really needed a heart-warming story! Brrr. My brother told me to cheer up - he heard it is supposed to warm up... in April. Always the jokster that brother of mine!
