The gift of Love

I started a quilt for our son and future daughter in-law for Taya's shower, but did not get it finished until their wedding.  I  did not give them the quilt as a wedding gift because they had not settled into their home and gave it to them when they moved into their home outside of Hyannis.
I designed the center blocks and placed them on point.  They were real sticklers, so I changed my design to finish making the blocks.  I don't suggest trying this without paper piecing and the center is soooo bulky. 
I embroidered a brand on each side for our son...Several years ago our son and daughter designed this brand for their livestock.

I quilted saddles, boots, hats and a bucking bronc as an all over design on this quilt.  There is a panograph with this "rodeo" design on it.  The design fits our son perfectly.

I pray that this quilt will give our son and daughter in-law  comfort and warmth in their marriage. God has given me the gift to make and give.  I give this to them with all my heart and love!!
As God has given each of us a gift to serve, guide and love...it is our duty to give and share our gifts with others.
