Our First Quilt

It's a first for the both of us. The first quilt I have ever tried to sew and the first she has owned. I started this project about two months ago and it has been an interesting journey.  I am sure I felt every emotion possible in the process.

It began with good intentions.  The quilt I envisioned was perfect in every way.  I did some research, studied some tutorials, and created the pattern.  In the end, it was not perfect by any means... I made some measuring mistakes along the way, had to unstitch and cut certain parts, second guessed my color choices, but I made it through.  This first of many quilts fell short of those good intentions but it is made with love.  When she uses her little quilt, I want her to remember that she is wrapped in my love.

When I think about the process it took me to finish this, I think about my journey as mom.  I am a mom full of good intentions and in the process, mistakes are made and things don't always turn out the way I envisioned them to be.  I look back and wish I could have done certain things better.... but, at the end of the day this precious little girl knows that I love her with all my heart and that is all that matters.

  1. You did a fabulous job! My MIL is trying to get me to quilt, but I don't think I have the patience for it.

  4. I LOVE how it turned out! I would love to make one like that for Dazlynn one day. I am going to keep all her baby clothes - of course for the newest addition but also so once they are done being reused I can *maybe* attempt such a task! Lol =)
