I swear I wanted to make every quilt that Lynette Jensen, of Thimbleberrie fame, created. I wanted dark, dark, dark plaids and colors.
I wanted woodsy, homey feelings.
I just about made every quilt in this book.
This quilt was my first Thimbleberry quilt.
I hand quilted everything back then. I love this star in the log cabin block called Midnight Sky. I remember picking this pattern out for my son's bed. It just never quite fit his full size bed. And after all that work, I was a little nervous to have my young son living on this quilt.
So I tucked it away for another time.
Little did I know in 1995 when I finished this quilt for my son, who was then 5, that he would be taking it to California to stay warm and to be wrapped in love from one who loves him so much.
I barely made it through the songs in church today.
Too much.....mother, father, daughter and son.
We miss him pretty badly.
He's doing great, though!
Thank you for your well wishes!
They mean a lot to me.
I hope this quilt comes home in 2 years....
... well used, worn and loved.
