During a summer cookout I asked that everyone provide me with a handprint. I think they thought I was crazy. We live a very different life then Chuck's step siblings so they always think we are crazy, but that is a different post!
I then cut out squares of fabric and attached to some heat and bond and then cut out the handprints and attached them to my fabric. I then stitched name and year of birth under each handprint and added the year of marriage between the handprints.
The little prints where added under their parents.
A border was then added. I found that it was less expensive to finish off the quilt with a fleece blanket on the inside and then use a sheet to back it. I love giving homemade gifts!
I hope you are taking time to enjoy the simple moments!
