I Captured Love

This week, I'm at Christy's house, and I've been so excited to get to post these captures, so Beth, I'm totally cheating this week. These shots are all ones that I've taken over the course of a few months. It's how I captured love.


Crooked Eyebrow herself said it perfectly when on Twitter she called it the "quilt that blogging love made".

We all chose a fabric, and I took them all to my mom. We put them all together.

And sorted them so they could be washed.


After we chose the quilt pattern, my mom cut the fabric into squares.


Then we arranged the fabric into the pattern and made sure each square had found the perfect home.

After, we organized labeled each row so no square would lose its way.


Each square was sewn...


and hand tied with such care and love.

We may not have all met face to face yet, but we all are friends. We have a bond. And there is love in that bond. As friends, we wanted to do something very special for a very special little girl. So, that's how the quilt that blogging love was made. And that is how I captured love.

I love quilts and seeing all the work that goes into them. The shot with her hands at the sewing machine is my favorite.

It came out beautifully! I've never tied a quilt before, only sewn/quilted. The pic that Crooked Eyebrow took with little Eden on the quilt was the best. Thanks to your super-talented mom!
