It is really easy for me to pick my favorite quilt. The Hope Valley fabrics jumped into my bag during a trip to my local fabric store this spring. Don't you just hate it when fabric some how jumps in without you knowing?! My husband thinks I may have something wrong with me because it happens all the time! :) Anyway, the fabric sat in my sewing room for a few months and I just couldn't find the right project for it.
My husband and I have been trying for a baby, and as with most great things in life, it's taking a little while. One Saturday this summer, he was gone at Poker Night with his guy friends and I was surfing the internet. I pulled up Facebook and found that yet another friend was pregnant. As happy as I was for them, it was hard to hear that yet again it was someone else's turn and not mine. After a good few minutes of sulking, my eye caught the fabric. I decided that although I couldn't do anything about when our little one would arrive, I could make something for them. The evening turned into a wonderful time of prayer and thinking about my hopes and dreams for this little one. Before I knew it, the quilt top was done and I LOVED it! I went to the fabric store the next day and got the backing and this quilt now happily sits in a drawer that I'm slowly filling with things for a baby. I can't wait for the day it will be puked on and loved on! :)
Without further ado, here's the quilt!
