I posted this quilt on my personal Instagram awhile ago. This was my son's Christmas present last year. I worked on this quilt for several months and had to sneak working on it since my sewing desk is in our family room. The blocks were done using paper piecing pattern I found on #grannymaudsgirl blog. It's a massive quilt and I love when he cuddles in it. This is the link to the blog post in case anyone is interested!! https://www.google.com/amp/s/grannymaudsgirl.wordpress.com/2015/02/01/union-jack-quilt-block-tutorial/amp/ #unionjackquilt
Shhhhh I snuck the #bluerkblocks quilt into work. The Friday before labor day is usually dead. Thought I could squeeze some binding in on my lunch hour. I showed this quilt to my mom last night and explained what it was all about. She started to cry when she saw the label. She was a dispatcher way back in the day. She also relayed the news story she had just watched about Sgt. Perez who drowned while trying to get to work in Houston. His wife asked him not to go,but he said he had a job to do. Makes me even more grateful to those who put their life on the line for us even knowing what kind of sacrifices there are. Thank you @craftycop for for your service and for the opportunity to let us help the families of these heroes. If you want to learn more about @craftycop and her goal to provide quilts to fallen police officers families check out her Instagram. There are lots of ways to help! #hero#bluerkblocks
While touring a university with my youngest we stopped at a live history farm. People work it and show you how things work. They had a neat collection of hand sewn and early machine stitched quilts. Might have been my favorite part!
