Jonathan is helping his cousins finish the family quilt project. The quilt we started in December. Yes, that would be of 2007. I'm not much of a crafter. Does it show?
My nieces finally started calling me on my proscrastination. They're not ones to let me slide from my familial obligations, no they're not. Once, they were relentless in making me go shoe shopping. The quilt project was no different.
Speaking of procrastination, my younger, employed, handsome brother who drives a Maxima and volunteers as a Big Brother, is still single.But this post is about the quilt, not my brother's dating prospects.
So finally, the other day, we got busy on the quilt. We tied quilt corners with pretty ribbons
after arranging and rearranging the squares to get the color scheme just right.Oh, nevermind.
Sometimes it helped to get our faces right down into the quilt, for perspective.
But sometimes we needed a foot for help, too.
Ain't it purty?
But see the blank square in the bottom left corner? BRADY!
You come here right now, young man. You can run, but you cannot hide. You will do a quilt square. You hear me? I'm hopeful Brady will still do his square.
Oh, and little brother? I'm just trying to help. Really.
