We've been working on the quilt. (well, mostly me). I love it. I love having something productive to do as I finish out these last weeks of the pregnancy. I am so thankful that Trever encouraged me to send out an invite for our friends to contribute to Abby's quilt. Encouraged might be a bit understating what he did, he pretty much had to strong-arm me get me started.
It's been amazing to see the love that has poured in for her. As I prepped each piece of fabric I felt blessed. I've never enjoyed ironing so much. Even while cutting I was trying to remember who contributed each fabric.
My dear friend Marissa basically forced me to make the choice to hire someone to embroider each square. I was planning to work on the embroidery myself with a friends machine but it ended up in the shop. I'm thankful that we didn't give up on adding names. I'm thankful for her push, she knew I needed it. I'll have the squares back in a couple days and then I'll be working hard to put the quilt together so we can send it off to be quilted.
This is going to be a very special quilt. I'm so excited to get it done.
