I have long been an admirer of Martha's work. She can take forgotten little pieces of old quilts and make them into the most wonderful things.
So when she offered to send me a baby quilt kit to work on, I couldn't say no, could I?
I am so glad I overcame my superstitions and said yes! Look at the beautiful package she sent me:
She sent everything* I need to put together a baby Aster quilt for the new baby. (And I might add that everything she sent is "perfect" - cut perfectly, ironed perfectly and goes together very, very easily. Unlike my own often shoddy work. LOL)
Just look at some of those beautiful vintage fabrics! Wonderful I tell you.
I've been taking my time putting it together. I want it to really come together nicely in order to honor the care she took in getting it together for us.
Here are her sample blocks, truly spectacular. :-) (Never mind my crooked photos. 14 weeks and STILL gagging. Oy.)
Thank you so very much Martha. Your kindness when I was feeling particularly down was much needed and I am sure we are going to enjoy it for many generations to come.
And a just because photo. Jack wanted to buy this basket of apples at a garage sale, so I said yes. It's been on the porch. I think he is using the sticks to make an apple pie.
*You can see a photo of the complete kit on her blog. Me + camera = not such great friends right this second. Off to take more medicine before I have to make friends with the trash can. Ha.
