An Artsy Moment For Nana

My mom is best known for her bears but she has temporarily taken a break from her precious creations to try her hand at quilting. Every Monday she has been visiting my Great Aunt Sue (whom I am named after) and has been taking lessons. Aunt Sue is known for her beautiful quilts. They are truly coveted and I was so blessed to receive one of them as a gift for my wedding. I cherish it and think of her every time I warm up with it.

Now Sullivan will be able to experience the same thing with this beautiful gift Nana brought with her on her recent trip for him as his gift for his 1st birthday. ( which is approaching sooo quickly) This is the product of my mother's first attempt at quilting. Amazing really. The colors are beautiful and the Winnie the Pooh fabric matches his nursery perfectly. The blocks are matched up perfectly and you would never guess it was a first. She even signed her work with a sweet note to Sullivan on a patch on the back.

Sullivan will have this forever and will surely think of his Nana every time he curls up in it. It is a bit big for his crib but will be perfect when he is ready for his big boy bed. (also approaching too quickly)

Love you mom. Thank you so much for the most memorable 1st birthday gift. We both cherish it.

I'm so happy that you are pleased with Sullivan's quilt. I had so much fun making it and learning to quilt with Auntie Sue. I'm honored to have Auntie Sue pass her legacy on to me. Big shoes to fill there for sure. I can't wait to see it on Sullivan't big boy bed.
As TIdoubleGR would say, TTFN
love you LOTS ! ! !
