The reveal


I didn't tell you there would be a reveal coming up because I didn't want to spoil the surprise for my daughter. As I've mentioned before, the 100Details challenge creates a great need for seams, and after a while there is also a need to create projects rather than just block upon block of crazy quilting. This is the special project I decided on. It's a 12" x 12" crazy quilted birth announcement for my grandson, Joshua, (pictured in the middle). I made it for his first birthday which we celebrated today. I thoroughly enjoyed this project and I've incorporated a beautiful piece of old lace and a delicate old piece of tatting. Look closely, the tatting circles his picture and the lace is directly above.

That is a very sweet birth announcement! How sweet of you to make that for your daughter. I like how the tatting frames the baby picture. What a cute baby, too!

What a wonderful way to commemorate his birth. I know she had to be thrilled with that. It will be a treasure forever. Great stitching, too. I like the choices you made from the 100 days.

How beautiful! I love your idea and will have to see if I can make one for my daughter in law - oops -I mean two as we are expecting twins!
