Ok, my insanity now is over. It’s time for serenity later.
|A Vintage Christmas, 68″ by 88″|
Before there was pinterest, there was me, clipping out photos from magazines. One such photo was of two cute golden retriever puppy dogs sleeping piled upon each other on a bed decorated for Christmas. And under the puppies was something that drew my eye even more – a crisp red and white quilt. (Does that make me a cold person? Quilts over puppies? Shoves puppies off bed and gasps at quilted treasure! Am pure evil, no? )
In any case, I clipped the picture and saved it in my pile, otherwise known as a quilty bucket list.
So, my friend Mandy posted on Facebook that she was looking for a Christmas blanket or quilt to use for her Christmas photography sessions. Long story short, I badgered her into letting me make her *the perfect quilt*.

Here’s me being artsy. Or… forcing my husband to watch all four kids and take a picture with his phone of me holding the quilt up against the Houston downtown sky.
And by the way she loves it! Yah!
