such a beautiful soul!
Among all the amazing support that I received after the passing of my father, this card stood out for me among them all. It was sent to me by a dear friend and described my father in the most truthful way. His life was so well-lived and it would be a tragedy, if I wasn’t able to preserve that in some way. With this beautiful card, the most amazing fabric was sent my way in memory of my dad. The vibrant colors remind me of his jovial aura and island glow that he always carried with him each step of the day.
After reading the card and staring at the fabric for hours on end, I knew (per the instructions from the card) that I needed to make a quilt. Something just for me to curl up in, especially on those tough days when I feel like there is no will to go on. A quilt that each time I see it, a smile crosses my face in sheer joy that my daddy would be proud of it.
For this quilt, I decided to go with Jeni Baker’s Giant Vintage Star Quilt. For these vibrant fabrics, this is going to be the most amazing pattern to showcase all of the designs in this amazing bundle. After completing another project – I’ll post about it tomorrow (maybe, don’t hold me to that one)….I spent most of the weekend cutting out fabric and getting pieces ready for sewing. As for last night, I spent a vast majority of my time fabric mapping. I’m not sure if many quilters do that, but I am notorious for mapping out what fabrics need to be placed where. Jeni actually provides a blank printout for you to use for this purpose. Now that I have an idea of where I am going with it, I am looking forward piecing it together.
Indigo LaRue has been set up and we are ready to go!
Excited about sharing this project and many others –
