This quilt was made to honor my nephew when he retired from his many years of service. His countless trips overseas, including the Middle East. I transferred to fabric a picture of each of his assignments. I used his now retired uniforms to make the blocks. His patches and buttons to embellish the quilt. It took over a year to finish. It tells his story. I am so proud of him. I presented this to him at his retirement party.
My Granddaughter Elena was turning two and I decided to make her a small quilt. Her momma said she was in a toddler bed. So I didn’t think that would be very hard. When I had quite a few squares made, I called her mama and asked her for the dimensions of the toddler bed. I told her I was almost finished with all the squares, and I was excited to get them put together. Elena’s Momma told me that Elena didn’t like her toddler bed, and they had set up a queen size bed for her to sleep in. All I could think of was I had a lot more squares to make.
Our youngest boy is getting married, and their wedding is centered around sunflowers. I just love sunflowers. Sew I got this great idea I would try to make a quilt with sunflowers. Mind you I haven’t made very many quilts ( just a few) Sew this project is probably a little bigger than I should have bit on..... I found the cutest sunflower on Pinterest. This is it sew far....
