NEW QUILT DESIGN

Most of you know that a few months ago my sister Jeanette of Inchworm Fabrics got a new logo for her blog. I loved this logo sooo much....


That I set about making a quilt...and this is what I came up with. Once again, no backing fabric...for once I have batting and no backing fabrics,what is up with that????

Now before some of you comment on how much I am doing, I had the top made in Samoa...I just got busy traveling and packing that I didn't have time to do the borders...... I decided to go simple with the borders and hope it is not too busy.



Notice my new signature? Naomi from Nome's brag-a-long did a post on signatures and I so loved hers and commented that hers was so much better than my kindergarden signature...before I knew it, she had sent me a signature.... I just love it...now I just need to get my signature heart on there.

I always would leave my son David a note if I was leaving before he got up and always sign my notes with love mom and then the heart with eyes and mouth. One day he left me a note, signed David and a heart...I chuckled to myself and cherish that note, I probably still have it.

I do love Jeannette's new logo, very much. But this quilt is spectacular. Barb...it is a wonderful quilt design, but also is an inspirational design that I think could, and should, be turned into a children's book. You and Jeannette really need to collaborate. This cute little worm has a story to tell.
