Dreams Do Come True

A Mother's Day never to be forgotten and this is how it started with my favourite flowers from my husband, these beauties represent the two sons that have grown up to be the heart of my heart.
 This is my entry into our local Victoria Quilt Guild show this past weekend and it's difficult to put into words how I feel right now.
 My quilt was voted by the Guild as their First Choice and I also won the Viewers Choice and CQA (Canadian Quilters' Association ) award...I'm over the moon.
 My hubby wanted a picture of me with the ribbons and what better place than in the spot that brings me the most joy and peace than my quilt room.   Pinch me, did this really just happen?

Next Step

After sewing the 5" squares into a nine patch unit they have all been sub cut ready to be pieced back together.

Yes, this is going to take a fair bit of time, I initially started this project for some mindless piecing but it's resulted in many seams to match, sigh.

Have a great Friday everyone and before I sign off I just want to send out loving thoughts to a family member who is sitting bedside with her husband who is in Palliative Care, our heart is with you both.
