Stitched with Love


This is a quilt I put together for my youngest son's high school graduation.


 Each 12-inch quilt block was lovingly designed and created by a family member or friend.  As you can see, the blocks are all very different, unique, and creative!
Once I received all the quilt blocks, I sewed them together with dark green cotton fabric.  The backing is made from a twin-size flannel flat sheet.
 A quilt shop did a lovely job machine quilting the piece.

A quilt is a blanket of love.

  1. Dear Kim...such a lovely quilt for your son! An empty nest does take some getting use to. Enjoy your time in the garden! Blessings ♥ Teri

  3. It's a very lovely and meaningful quilt, Kim!
    Green is one of my fav colours too :-)
    I know how you feel about having the last child leave the nest..it takes a bit of getting used to.
    But I don't think of myself as an "empty-nester", after all my hubby is still here and he's still pretty much a big kid at heart lol!
    Hope you enjoy your nice warm weather and gardening.

  6. Thank you Friends for all your lovely comments! It is so true that "many hands make light work", and I couldn't have made this quilt without the help of so many wonderful friends and family.
    Blessings,

  7. This is one of the most handsome quilts I've seen for a gift for a son. I like the woodland theme with all the fir trees, the gnome and the Lincoln and Hunter green colors. It is a testament of what love can do.
    When our two daughters married - five months apart - their leaving home was a pull on my heart - as we home schooled all the way through high school. But it is interesting to see how they have created their own homes.

    1. Dear Karen,
      It's so wonderful to meet you through my blog! Your book, A Charlotte Mason Companion, was such a joy and encouragement to me when I was homeschooling my three sons. I read it over and over again for encouragement! It was so good!
      Thank you for you kind words about my son's quilt. It was really fun to see it come together so beautifully.
      I will visit your blog soon and comment, in case you don't come back to this post and read this.
      Blessings,
      Kim
