Finally! Some sewing.

memory quilt blocks
It felt like I might never sew again, but this past weekend I managed to turn the machine on and piece some blocks. Now they are pinned together ready for me to turn into a quilt top sometime today. Wonders will never cease! The centres of the blocks are some that were prepared earlier by a youth group my Bradley helps lead. They threw a surprise party for one of the boys and my Bradley thought it would be lovely for him to be able to remember the occasion. I did feel a bit put upon at first (imagine him thinking I could quickly whip up a quilt!), but I'm fine with it now because I have actually done some sewing! So, off to sew.

I'd love to see that quilt when it's finished, looks like it's going to be lovely. Your quilt reminds me of the quilting that the mother who is dying, does for her kids in STEP-MOM .... memory quilts for them to remember her by and they are so beautiful. The daughter gets a quilt, but the son gets a quilted cape, because he wants to be a magician.
