I finally got to deliver this quilt to Miriam and Mike.
They had a very intense week last week,
they moved into their new house which was awesome
but Mike's mum died suddenly which was devestating.
Months ago I pulled the fabrics and picked a pattern
from The Gentle Art of Quiltmaking.
(I need to start putting tags in my blog so I can find things again)
I chose a combo of Tulip field and...
What I actually did is cut the fabric in half across the width of the fabric
and made three columns of it in random widths.
I really love how it turned out.
I was thinking of the verse in the bible in Eph 2:20
when I decided to make this quilt.
It's for a house of mainly boys so it needed to be manly
but also girly enough for Miriam.
She told me that she likes all the colours of a peacock tail,
so I went with that and added the orange and brown
because it sort of needed it!
I love making quilts like this.
Really I do.
I also love the Fisher family.
God bless you guys.
