House Warming Gift

Congratulations to my brother and sister-in-law for purchasing your first home!!! Good for you guys! It’s been a long road and you have earned it. So here is a picture of your house warming gift. If you don’t want to see it don’t look any further!

Ha! Like Kristie can resist!

So this is a quilt that I had started and didn’t quite know how to finish. Mom found it and due to the lack of wood for building my bed, or vanity or bedside tables decided that she would finish the quilt. We decided that it would be the perfect house warming gift since Kristie had been whiningum…requesting a quilt of her own for a while.

I don’t remember where I got the pattern for the quilt top but Mom extended it on the sides and quilted the whole thing. It was definitely a two person effort!

Don’t judge that my Christmas lights are still up. I live in the north and we just had snow 4 days ago and I still have a couple feet in the yard!!! And at  least they have been turned off since January. Unlike my neighbour who still has his turned on!!!

Yes someone that quilts would take issue with several things with this quilt but I had never really sewn before and this was my first attempt at sewing and quilting…I am ambitious!

Off to take the dogs for a well deserved walk!
