It's In Pieces

Quilting starts with pieces.

Arranging quilt pieces. A new little one will be arriving soon.

Mum's bias tapes
ready for a binding
In need of a binding. Without enough fabric left to make my own bias tape. 
Mum came to the rescue with a bag full of bindings stored in her sewing box.

Our new little baby will have warm bedding.
All the parts were assembled.

Love the quilt. Great choices of fabric. Enjoyed how you wove the story with the Christmas theme.
Blessing to you and your family waiting for the new bundle of joy.

How special for the new arrival to have a quilt waiting, made with tender loving care, and grandma's very own hands.

Stitch by stitch, made with love!
Enjoyed reading this expose of your creative process. Precious pieces woven together into a blanket of love. You are what all Mothers are; the thread that holds the family together.
