This sweet angel is Nova-Lee, born December 27, 2017. I finally had the chance to meet her (they live in Red Deer, Alberta.
I did have a nice visn’t with Miss Nova-Lee, her brother, Mason, her Mom, Nicole and her Nanny, Stacy. It was too short as there is never enough time to visit when you are snuggling with a wee one. My granddaughter, Nicole sent a photo when Nova-Lee was playing on her quilt.
I peiced the Road to Oklahoma Quilt with fabrics from my stash and my scrap bin so it’s a mix from all of my favorite fabric suppliers. Once I had it sandwiched I quilted with some stitch in the ditch and cross hatching, made a label and did my binding. All in all, I had a great time with this one and Nicole and Stacy were happy to get it, especially when I told them it’s machine washable! I used Warm and Bright batting; love it for baby quilts.
I love it when we get to FaceTime. Nova-Lee laughs, smiles and “talks” now.
.I think I have found another pattern to add to my favourites list. I have another Road to Oklahoma Quilt on the cutting table. I had some beautiful fabric in my stash which just was crying for a traditional pattern so off we go!
In the meantime my Lonestar Quilt is coming along. It near broke my heart when I came home from a Guild Meeting and discovered DH’s grandson had visited my studio and spilled his grape juice on it. After doing a complete Stitch picking job on it, I did salvage what I could, but was short of the original fabric so I’ve had to rework the design and it’s got a modern twist to it now. I’m using wool roving from Carstairs Woolen Mill for the batting. The couple it’s for live off grid here in the Kootenays so a warm quilt is a necessity. I will be sad to see this one go, but it is past time it was in its new home. More on this when I finish the last border!
