Ami’s Quilt

May 3rd, 2011

Ami loves to “read”.  Tonight she was “reading” her Sisters book to us, and came to a page where they are sitting in a chair together.  She pointed to the picture and said, “time out”.  Warren said, “No, they’re just sitting in the chair reading together.”  But Ami insisted they were in a time out!

I have finally started putting Ami’s 100 Good Wishes Quilt together.  I know, it’s been a whole year since I first started gathering fabric and wishes.  But it has been a busy year, too.  I found this neat fabric at Fabric Depot, (online), and was able to get it during a great sale.  It is similar in color and quality to the fabric I used for the back of  Miah’s quilt, but a different design.

I’m using the same “pattern” that I used for Miah’s.  First I lay out all the different squares and arrange them in fours, and rearrange them, and rearrange them again.   I was hoping to be able to get this done in the winter months (it’s a shame to work on inside projects when the weather is nice outside), but we still do not quite have 100 different fabric squares.  I got tired of waiting and started on it anyway, we’ll probably use leftover fabric from Miah’s quilt to finish out the 100.  So if anyone has any extra “Good wishes” they want to post for Ami, we could certainly use them!

Thank you everyone who has sent fabric and wishes for Ami.  It is really special to have each of you be a part of her quilt.  We enjoy reading what you have written for her, and I know someday Ami will treasure her scrapbook like Miah does hers.
