Remember the red work quilt I was making for my parent's 50th wedding anniversary? I DID actually finish it!! They did get it a few days after their anniversary back in September, but I don't think they minded that it was late.
It consisted of redwork blocks with their birth dates and places, their children's, and their grandchildren's, along with all the states they have lived in. It was many hours of time stitching, but I think the finished product is pretty nice.This is the center square...
If you look at the red squares below the bird, you will see two set of angel wings and halos, those are for lost babies.
Each person's square had some sort of picture that could be associated with that person. This one happens to be my mom's, a ball of filet crochet thread and a hook.
I think it will be awhile before I tackle another one of these, but maybe someday.
Have a love weekend,
