About that Quilt...


Okay, so the quilt is not done. Well, to be more specific, the quilt has not even been pieced together. I know, I know. Supermom would have it pieced, quilted, bound and displayed in the crib by now. I don't think Supermom homeschools, though...or feels lousy as often as I do. So cut me some slack! I have squared all of the squares, though. That means that I had to straighten, cut down, and make sure all of the squares will exactly fit together correctly. I'm still struggling with one that isn't working for me, but I'll do something to it eventually in a fit of rage to make it fit. We don't have 100 good wishes, but I'm pleased with the 68 or so we have. It's so nice that that many people cared enough to participate. Some people who make these quilts exchange squares with cyber friends, too, but I preferred to just use squares from friends and family who know us and will probably be a part in our daughter's life.
Mom has agreed to help piece the squares together, but I am waiting for another square. I found a place online that will embroider a square for us with the name Guo Zhen on it as well as the Chinese symbols for her name. Above I have posted the Chinese symbols. We haven't received this special square, but when we do I plan to finally get busy.

Hi Monica, just popping into your blog to see what's new! After reading your new post, I also wanted to tell you that the Guo character in your daughter's name is the same as the Guo character in Abby's name! How cool is that?
