I had carried Colton for 3 months when premature labor began. The doctor ordered complete flat bed rest for the remaining 6 months. During that time, Mom came over every day and stayed until Jeff returned from work. She cared for me and Jase (8) and Luke (3), cooked our meals, kept house and kept me company. (Such an angel!) It was during that trying time that I began to piece these sampler blocks.
I've averaged about .75 blocks per year (don't laugh)! But this year, I have decided that this project needs to be finished, and it will be a gift for Mom and Dad's wedding anniversary. I WILL hand-piece the remaining 3 blocks before spring.
Here are the ones that are completed:
The remaining 3 blocks of this sampler quilt are The Bear Paw, Sunbonnet Sue and Grandmother's Flower Garden which I'm still not certain how to accomplish yet. But I am determined to have it done this year! You girls hold me to that, okay! LOL
Wishing you a day filled with joy,
