This was a great weekend. It began with putting the finishing touches on the Nautical baby quilt.
My friend’s daughter, who is the mother to be, wanted these anchors added to the quilt. I sewed three on squares I used from her Grandfather’s yellow shirt, which I incorporated into the quilt. The navy checkered squares are from one of his shirts, and the blue oxford shirt is from her Great Uncle. This quilt has a lot of love in it, that’s for sure.
When sewing these on, it’s like hand applique. You have to hide your knots. I made a french knot with just one knot in it, not two, because the weave of the shirt is high and that means tight. I wouldn’t have been able to pull it through if it were two knots.
So I got two of them on Friday night and finished the third on Saturday, just as my favorite trick or treaters came by; The Minions.
These are the cutest Minions, Ever!! Glad our friends Hailey and Adam came by with their boys!! We were ready with their favorite M & M’s.
Just as I finished sewing on the last anchor. And we have a great finish!!
Three weeks to go before their little boy will be welcomed into the world my many family members and friends who can’t wait.
