I slept off and on last night with the longest period for about 45 minutes and wondering if I went to the hospital for a pain shot if they would put me in the padded room and tell me to tough it out?
This morning after my bible reading and getting the kids out the door to school (they were so awesome this morning), I decided that NO MATTER WHAT, I was going to at least finish this little baby quilt I have been working on for the past month a little at a time. And, I did! Well, I only had one side to finish sewing and the kids will tie it off for me because they love doing that part.
It is adorable and I made it without any binding. I just tucked the sides under and stitched them with a modified blanket stitch in a pale cream color. One side has pictures and old sayings of nursery rhymes and the other is children playing games like jump rope, London Bridge, etc.. I love both of these prints so decided to combine them for one quilt.
I just love the little rocking horses on this fabric and the background is almost like an old antiqued or tea dyed fabric so it would be perfect for a boy or a girl, an infant or toddler, a pre-school teacher or someone who just loves nursery rhymes.
I guess, that is why I combined these two very different fabrics, because they both remind me of times many years ago when the world was kinder, slower and we weren't worried about being so politically correct or making nursery rhymes into something less than they were intended to be.
The opposite side has such beautiful coloring box colors in basic orange, blue, red, greens and the childrens faces are so delightful as they are playing games in the summer or perhaps even at school. I know I am aging myself, but I remember playing some of the games shown here during recess in my younger days.
I can even remember when my oldest son was younger, that I dressed him in shorts with long socks and Buster Brown shoes and he looked so cute. You just don't see to much of that anymore unless perhaps you live on the east coast.
