Rolling Blue Waves





Hurricane Ike is nearing us today and I am binding this quilt while I stay home. Hooray! It is now  completed for Ben and Steph. I will mail it to them on Monday. I don't know why I avoid these little binding tasks for so long, maybe because a queen size quilt is so unwieldy. 

This lovely blue quilt is quilted with a serpentine stitch covering all the seams on the half triangle blocks, this helps with durability when you have a one year old and a  little pomeranian dog. These are large blue blocks and this worked up quickly. It has interlocking stars on the dark blue borders. Some of the fabric has little white doves on them, a hope for a peaceful nation and a peaceful home from grandma.

Mernie,
This is just beautiful! I love the dove message, too. A peaceful home is the most joyful thing one can have!
Love you!

How beautiful! I love it already and I haven't even seen it in person yet!

Natalie is so attached to Ben's Talk About quilt. She 'talks' about it every morning when she wakes up and every night before she goes to sleep.

Last night she pointd to the dog patch and said 'goggy'
