Fabric Friday

Back in January, I found the fabric I needed for a pattern in Fabric Trends magazine.

This is the pattern -

A closer look at the principle fabric -

Isn't this a great print? I think it looks very similar to the fabric that is featured in the magazine. The only fabric I could not find that day was the stripe.

The plan was to make this quilt after my BFF visited from cold country. But my dear mother in love became very sick and there has been no time for sewing. I love my dear mil and we have watched her slowly recover and then once again make a downward spiral. She is under Hospice care, but her family has been by her side 24/7 for the last 3 months.

There will be other days for sewing and quilting. Time with our loved ones is precious.

and should always be granted much more than they would take."

Sorry to hear about your MIL. I just had to take care of my mom, total hip replacement she is 83 and fine now. But it wasn't easy. I feel for all of you. I'll put you on my prayer list.

Love your fabrics especially the main one.

I hadn't ever heard 'mother in love' that is precious. I'll have to tell that to my own mil as she is truly a wonderful mom to me.

blessings to you all in this time of goodbyes.
