Post Card Quilt

I made this scrappy "Post Card Quilt" a long time ago. It's King-sized and made of nostalgic fabrics -- mostly leftovers from toddler dresses I made for our daughter. The second photo shows the hand-quilting I did, which is amazing to me as I could never do that now. I don't think I ever thought to post this on my blog, but our furnace is broken and I got this quilt out last night to stay warm. Then the idea to post it here came to me. The furnace will be fixed tomorrow. Why does it always break down on a weekend?!

  6. If the furnace has to break down it will ALWAYS do so at the worst possible time! Murphy's Law!! But what a beauty to snuggle under and keep warm. The thought of hand quilting something that size just makes me gasp with awe.

  8. Things break down or the kids would get sick on the weekends to where it would always cost more. Love the quilt.
