a quilt of 30 years

A quilt of 30 squares has begun

for to a good man this girl has been married

for 30 very good years.

So 30 fantabulous years later,

married man finally gets some quilt goodness for his very own self.

Since off to Paris this girl will soon fly,

and since busy preparing for Paris goodness this girl has been,

and since this mamma knows her family she will greatly miss,

which means squeezing in all the fun possible with their sweet little selves she has been every minute doing,

and since the sun has been shining

and my corner of the ocean beckons daily…

this happily married girl puts off till another day

a few wonderful words

married man quite deserves.


And as time allows more quilting to be perfectly pieced,

the goodness will be with you shared!

I promise.

I happen to not be a rule-follower in all things crafty. An imperfectionist of sorts. Whatever your fancy, I hope you find it helpful in some sweet way.

Here we go:
