Quilt Squares

...from Simeon's baby quilt, rediscovered today when we were putting away the winter throws.

Jeremy had drawn the ducklings and I had turned them into applique.


Cute, cheerful, and Eastery wouldn't you say?


Why then, did they make me want to cry?

Suzanne, they are adorable! Any chance you would share a picture of the entire quilt?

Awww, what precious little duckies...wait, just you wait till Simeon is where my Stephen is....30 days away from graduation and 4 months away from leaving for college...now I'm crying with you. :)

I know what you mean about wanting to cry!

Beautiful though.

And remember the good old days when we had time to sew?

((Hugs)) I remember that adorable quilt!

They are so sweet! You two are an amazing team.

It seems like just yesterday, doesn't it? Life passes in a whirlwind when you are raising kids. And it only seems to get faster and more whirly as time moves on. I'd go back and do it all again in a heartbeat.

Thanks for the reminder to make today count---Carpe Diem!

Those are so sweet! Of course, I am studying each photo closely thinking, "How did she do that?"...

you cried because they are precious and you were lamenting the fact he is no longer a baby...

Thanks everyone, and e. caughron, the truth is that I made some poor color coordinating decisions when I framed these squares and put them in the quilt. It isn't horrid, but the squares remain the best part. I would do it differently if I went back, but Simeon loves it as is. He's put it on his bed and I think it's going to stay there.

Oh, Suzanne, these are beautiful! How did you make the wonderfully detailed beaks and the little webbed feet? Is there any chance you'll show us the whole quilt? I'm sure it's adorable, regardless!

You are so talented, Suzanne. I'm sure Simeon will treasure this for many, many years.

Melissa said...

Oh, my goodness. Such sweetness! I totally would have cried, too!
