Sugar and Spice by The Quilted Fish
At the last BAMQG guild meeting, my fellow quilters donated supplies to make a quilt for Japan. Julie donated this gorgeous stack of fabric from her shop, The Intrepid Thread. That same week I bought this book, and I've been itching to make the quilt on the cover ever since.
My son (5 years old) asked who I was making this quilt for. This is a popular question whenever I start a new quilt. When I explained that it was for someone in Japan that I didn't know but really needs a quilt. He wanted to know if I thought there was a kid his size that needed a quilt too. My heart swelled. I had a stack of donated charms that I had cut in half. He set to work right away arranging them on the design wall. This is his work in progress...
Each piece was placed thoughtfully and with determination. He drew out a design on a piece of paper so I would know how to sew them together. I think someone has been watching me. : )
