Be Awesome

As I was finishing this quilt, I remembered an inspirational story I heard recently. The gist was that we all can choose how to go through each day, and that we can choose to be awesome. My nephew recently had some surgery, so I wanted this quilt to tell him that I consider him to be an awesome young man.

"Awesome" quilt finish

After completing the organic straight lines, I didn’t like the finish through the top and bottom sashing of Kona Ash, so I went back and added the square stipple, then freehand wrote the word AWESOME and filled in each letter.

In case he needs a reminder...

After washing, the quilt crinkled nicely. My mother- and father-in-law were enlisted as quilt holders, and I think he’ll like it.
