The embroidery reads "love my nest."
See the appliqued blue Andy bird?
Look closer. It's there. There are two others for Trev and Moo, too.
I really love the colors in this one. I went back and forth with that orange. I even did surgery to the finished top to work a triangle in that could tie the whole thing together. I worried about the fabric bleeding in the wash (remember, I don't prewash) - but a Shout Color Catcher made everything okay. Then I looked at it too long and started questioning it again.
But now it is finished and I love it.
I also shot some pictures of my very first quilt. I really disliked it... until now. I trimmed off the nasty rolled binding, topquilted it myself, and then rebound it in green. This quilt was made with fabric scraps and pieces of clothing belonging to my ex-husband and I, ten years ago.
It includes part of his U.S. Navy uniform.
and his flannel pajama pants.
I didn't like it because of what it was before. But seeing it on Trevor's bed, all finished - it's beautiful because of what it means to him.
