A Summer Day In Quilt Form

While enjoying a beautiful fall weekend in Wisconsin, with my parents, The Queen of Quilts gave Grace a quilt that embodies the perfect summer day.


This quilt reminds me of sunshine, freshly cut grass,


beautifully bloomed flowers


the simple pleasure of pinwheels...


and jump roping.


The front of this quilt is everything I had hoped for Grace's big girl room BUT let's not overlook the back of the quilt.


The back of the quilt has a hand embroidered label reading: let her sleep for when she wakes she will move mountains.


This beautiful quilt will be placed on Grace's new big girl bed. While she is tucked safely under it, I hope she has the happiest dreams.

  3. Amy, the label is absolutely my favorite part. I'd like to do a piece of wall art with that saying and hang it right over my daughters bed! I don't know much about quilting, but I know enough to be properly impressed!! Send you mom my kudos!!
