Leaving secret messages in the quilts I made for my children proved to be a stroke of brilliance.
Like a treasure hunt just for them they pored over their quilts, gliding their eyes and their hands looking for where their message had been stitched.
You can actually see Ainslie's in this picture. Funny, but she did not look at the back.
In tiny, tightly-grouped letters, her message reads: "Snug as a bug in a rug, this quilt is full of hugs." Her roommate, Caitlyn, found it first.
Here is a view of the front. It is a pattern called Two by Fours and it was easy-peasy to make.
Only one more to finish and the Christmas quilts will be done. Well, the 2008 Christmas quilts, anyway. 2009 has just begun!
Did you notice that I only have one more post until I reach 100? Be on the lookout here for a speicial little giveaway in celebration of my 100th post. You will be so happy you did!
Oh, and please, pay no attention to the package of toilet tissue on the floor. Please? How did I miss that?
