completed sewing project: wonky stars for captain eric. i made this quilt for my little nephew. we were so excited that he was coming. this quilt was a plethora of firsts for me... my first wonky star, my first completely improv quilt, my first go at random straight line quilting, and my first dance with this lovely remix fabric. i loved everything about the whole process. and since he lives quite a far away from me so i wanted him to have something from me, from us. something that would make him warm, something that i could pour all of my love and happy thoughts into just for him. so that when he is wrapped up in it, even though we are not near him, he can still feel our love.
