This was originally created for the "StitchThis" contest to win a Bernia Sewing Machine. I came in third. Even though I didn't win the machine, I appreciated this quilt as it reminded me of how grateful I am every moment to be a mother. While making this, my son was recovering from a shattered hip after falling while rock climbing 850 ft. up in Yosemite. It took over 6 hours of dangling on the cliff for rescue. Needless to say, I am thankful to the rescue climbers and I AM COUNTING MY BLESSINGS! ! ! ! !
