quilt #1 for project swaziland

the stash buster, backlit

this morning i was up bright and early, so i decided to make good use of the time alone and finish my stash-buster quilt top. i looked at it, and looked at it, and pondered. should i keep it? it was meant to be a quilt for me originally. but the more i looked at it, the more i thought about how dang spoiled we are already, and how even though all the quilts we personally have in house are, um, well, wannabe quilts from target and ikea, they are still blankets and we are warm when we need to be.


this is going to be the first quilt i make for the children's ward at good shepherd hospital in swaziland. i feel good about this decision.

my oldest, however, is upset that we're not using the quilt top as a permanent curtain. i can't say i blame him, it did look pretty rad with all that morning sunlight shining through. as per usual with my stupid camera, the picture is lame.

When I look at this quilt, it's like looking at a stained glass window. Awesome!
