dr. nolan's quilt.

01 December 2008



omg it's done!!!
it's really and truely done!!!
*deep breath*

this quilt has been a huge monkey on my back the past few weeks!!!
why???
well i had a strict deadline.
and i made it!!!
{thank god.}

the story about this quilt:
my momma...yall know my momma...
well her boss of years now, dr. nolan, is a great guy!!!
for christmas this year the staff wanted to give him a quilt.
*insert rachel here*

we went with a basic single irish chain.
we chose blue because that's the color of the staff's scrubs.
and in the setting blocks i hand embroidered the staff's names.
{i know...lots o' work!!!}

this bad boy is being mailed out tomorrow morning.
{express shipping to charleston, south carolina!!!}
to be presented to dr. nolan at the trident pain center's christmas party on friday!!!
{i cut that one close huh???}

don't get me wrong though.
i really did enjoy working on this quilt.
i mean hello...irish chain!!!
tehehe.

so now momma is waiting to hold it in her arms.
and 'test' how snuggly it is before dr. nolan gets it.
{haha momma.}

momma has already showed pics to the staff...
she has assured me that "everyone ♥s it"
and i realize that i am my own worst critic...
but what i'm really getting at is:
what do yall think???
i know that the hand embroidery is not the best, but it has character...right???
and at least i tired something new...right???
:D

Pin It!
