Gratitude Week ~ Day 2
Today I am very grateful for my parents. I am grateful for the love they share and for the many wonderful things they have taught me. It was my mother who started teaching me to quilt when I was eleven years old and my sweet father who supported us every step of the way.
My mother embroidered these beautiful autumn blocks, but had a hard time sewing them together. They are very stiff and bulky. I finished assembling the blocks together for her.
Then I quilted it with my walking foot on my small domestic sewing machine.
Originally she wanted me to bind it with the same tan used in the blocks, but I thought it needed a darker frame. She bought a beautiful darker brown fabric for the binding.
I love how it looks with the darker frame.
Here you can see how little quilting I actually did. I am so grateful I can help my mother finish her quilts.
What are you grateful for today?
