Then I panicked a little bit.
I rushed over to the school and found my very pale daughter being examined by paramedics. I followed the ambulance over to the emergency room and after several hours of evaluation and tests, and despite not having any significant symptoms, an x-ray revealed that she has pneumonia.
She is home with me for the rest of the week while the antibiotics do their job, so I enlisted her to take a few quilt photos. I know these photos aren't the best, just remember that those little feet in the photo belong to a little girl who has pneumonia and whose mom is making her take quilt photos.
I made this quilt with the fabrics that came in the Culcita box. I had left them out on my shelf and they were calling to me.
The block is the Missouri Star block. I saw it on Pinterest this weekend and thought it would be a great fit for the fabric.
The binding is scrappy and I used chunky, Perle cotton stitches to attach it to the back of the quilt. I have started finishing all of my bindings this way because it feels more secure, I enjoy it, and I think it gives the quilt a nice personal touch. The backing is Kona Navy. I don't usually back quilts with solid fabric, but I thought it went well with the scrappy binding.
The winner of the giveaway is Kathy E. I will email you for your mailing address.
