First Order Of Granny Business

I made a quilt for the baby. My friend helped me choose a pattern and the fabrics, then cut most of the strips for me too. For the rest I was left to my own devices. Have a look-see.....




I collected some scriptures and prayers and printed them onto iron-on transfer paper to sew into the quilt so he'll be all snuggled up in prayers and the Word of God


In true S4J fashion, I forgot to flip the print during printing, so they all printed backwards. Good thing no one will see them but me. Well, and you.


Also in true S4J fashion, I broke a cardinal rule of quilting (or if it isn't a cardinal rule, it should be. If you're a quilter and you think it shouldn't be, then maybe it should be just for me) I cut the Scripture strips on top of my finished quilt top......



Here is the finished quilt.


Folded over so you can see the brown bear flannel on the back. So snuggly, soft and warm.

Now I need a chiropractor.

Darling! I've made that type of mistake and about 3 million more...I remind myself that the Amish make a mistake on purpose on their quilts to remind them that only God is perfect. Perhaps that's just your Amish coming out.
