Be Grateful

Hi All,

I just finished quilting this quilt and thought it was a good time of year to add it to my blog as a reminder to be grateful for all that we have been given. My customer, Kathy did a beautiful job of piecing and applique-ing, and I can't wait to see it when she gets all the embellishments added to it. A special thanks, Kathy, for leaving the embellishment off until after I had it quilted !
A little "Be Patient" reminder for all of us. . . . . . . it is a virtue, you know ! If you look carefully, or enlarge, maybe you can see my new favorite quilting pattern. . . nested hearts. I will add a picture of the back of the quilt below that shows them better. . .

Here's a shot of the 4 borders.

Here is the back of the quilt showing the nested hearts. . . I just love this stitch. I see there is a little of the border showing at the bottom too. .. By the way, the backing is flannel. . .oh so warm and cozy !
On the homefront here. . . I have been busy "Being Grandma" with our 5 yr old grandson visiting for a little over a week. What a good little boy, and we have been thoroughly enjoying every precious moment with him. At the same time, we've been cleaning up the garden, getting ready for winter, having bluegrass band practices and jams, and now deer hunting has started ! No snow here yet, we are enjoying daytime temps in the 50's but I am sure that will soon change.
So, now, don't forget to "Be Patient" " Be Kind" " Be Trustworthy" " Be Grateful" and just " Be Good" ! And. . . enjoy this season of Thankfulness. . .

I have this same book/pattern and have pulled all sorts of fabrics from my stash to make it -- I love how your customer did hers, and your quilting is wonderful!
Thanks for sharing
