Waiting for Liam
I'm ready, ready, READY to meet this new grandson! A few minutes ago I finished stitching the binding to a quilt for him - a quilt my mother began for Tom when I was pregnant with him 26 years ago. Mom cross-stitched the alphabet squares and pieced the cross-stitch squares and fabric squares together. Then she got busy (a lot of grandchildren arrived in a few short years and she was - and is - a very hands-on involved grandmother - the very best!) and put the quilt aside and didn't finish it. A few years ago she gave it to me to finish, and while I went ahead and put the batting and backing on, and quilted it, I waited until Kate was pregnant to figure out what to use for binding. Last week I finally found a fabric that I liked, so I cut and sewed and ironed and pinned and stitched and today.... it is complete.
So please come on, Liam!
