Some quilt pics
I know I've featured this quilt before, but I thought I'd post pics of some of the blocks as wells as give some explanations as to why they're in our quilt. I hope you're all enjoying the new year! Stop by Lara's blog to see what others are talking about.
I love stars - they remind us of Christ. The rippling quilting lines reflect that Christ's love can emanate from us and reach others.
The flowers signify the beauty around us and our love for gardening
More flowers and also a basket to show that it's important to share the beauty around us
The Tree of Life and the word virtuous
Another star - reminder to keep Christ in us
Snail's Trail (maybe an attempt at humor on my part - it took forever to finish this quilt)
A heart to remind us that there is Love at Home
Dresden plate - mealtimes are important family times
More flowers - Ty's sensory garden will always be a part of wherever we live
I cannot remember exactly what this one is called, but it does pay tribute to sacrifices made by those who came before us
The word hope and a log cabin block with a red center to signify that we're grateful for our home and the love in it
What sorts of blocks would you include in your family quilt?
