How grateful we are to have another story on an international website. This one is on Quilts, Inc. That's the group that hosts the big quilt convention that I went to last May in Salt Lake City and Polly, Kristen's mom went with us. You can read the story here. It talks about my quilt project for the kiddos coming home through Reece's Rainbow. So I thought I would show you what I do.
This is really the last part of making the quilt. I have to put the binding on.
I very carefully pin it.
I have to make sure the edges match up perfectly. Then I sew it on the machine.
Next I write a little note.
All done. This one is going to Kirill. We were praying for him. His adoption took a little extra time because the judge first said no. But his family did not give up and appealed the decision and then they got to go back to Russia to bring him home. You can read about the journey on their blog.
Oh wait, I think I will add a smiley face. I sure hope he likes it. I picked one with cute dogs and cats on it. The fabric is call Max & Whiskers by Basic Grey for Moda.
Kirill loves it!!!!
We sent two pillow cases. One for Kirill and one for his brother. Are they so cute:) The pillowcases we make in memory of Kristen Ann Kirton. One more happy day!!!
