Judy,

You are blessed.. Happy Birthday to your father!
I love this quilt. Did you make that yourself? I have loved this scrappy look for so long and yet have to make one of these! You have inspired me today!

Judy Martin said...

Yes, I made the quilt.

It is designed to be like a children's counting book. one hand. two birds. etc up to four hearts - representing my four children.

My children are my blessings.

this reminds me a little of the painting by angelica kauffmann of cornelia....it's always been one of my favorites and one of my most favorite notions....children as jewels....as blessings.

happy birthday to your father.
he's a remarkable living legacy around him of superbly talented women. jewels of his very own.

This has always been one of my favourites, though I have many. I think beside the colours, it is that I like the feel of it
