I don't even know where to begin. I'm still in a sort of shock about it all and words are not coming easily for me. So I'll just start with this: I have the sneekiest, most wonderful, thoughtful quilty friends.
To say this last year has been trying is an understatement. But as trying as it has been, it has also been just as much of a blessing. (That is really hard to say when I focus on all of the heartwrenching events that have happened in the last year, but it's true.) And when Amy contacted Kerry about doing something for me, Kerry set into motion "Quilty Love".
Quilty Love is a quilt as you go quilt consisting of 36 blocks and is approx. 84" square. It was made using Monica's tutorial.
I have literally spent hours pouring over the blocks in this quilt. There is personal meaning in the fabrics (and selvedges!) each person used that went right to the heart of me.
And Fozzy must feel the love, because he wants to be in it every chance he gets!
Sonja, Nova, Ayumi, Kerry, Laurraine, Krista, Marit, Lynne, Angela, Charise, Anna, Dan, Tamiko, Amy, Laurie, Faith, Amanda, Melinda, Amber, Monica, Leila, and Jody: I heart each and every one of you!! and thank you from the bottom of my heart!
And last but certainly not least, I must say a special thank you to Tara, Michelle (sewdemented, isn't that the best name??), and Carmen. Tara collected all the blocks and while Tara sewed them together, Michelle and Carmen made binding and supplied moral support. You girls are the best and I still can't believe you had sewing days without me! :)
