Celeste's Quilt

This is the quilt I made for our middle daughter, Celeste.  She is the one who encouraged me to blog about the things I make, and actually got me going.  She has a blog too---it's at: is much better at it than I am.  It's nice to be able to call her if I have questions.  I know I should have many more questions, but I'm just not there yet.

I named this one Daisy Chain.

I love daisies, so I designed and appliqued  these,  AND I love yellow in quilts.  (It's a little hard to live with on the walls though.  I've tried patches of yellow on my walls and it just wears me out.)  I tried to make my girls quilts somewhat similar in color and borders--you know--sister quilts.  When the first two daughters were small I made them a lot of matching clothes. 

One Sunday afternoon my husband dressed the girls for evening church service while I was at choir practice, and-----

you would think he would notice something wasn't right.  The ladies in the choir got a good laugh.  This makes good memories.  Anyway-----Here is a close up of one of  the daisies.

Celeste is a wife and homeschooling mother to 5 busy children.  She enjoys gardening, interior decorating, blogging, and mothering.  She is a very busy girl, and knows where her priorities are.  She loves babies just like I do, and is always smooching their sweet little cheeks.

  5. I took this picture after church, because I thought it was hilarious. My husband read the post and I thought he would laugh himself to death--He's a good sport.

  6. I almost laughed myself all the way to the potty! Hilarious indeed!! I think I now understand why Steve refuses to pick clothes out for the girls :)
