there are a lot of fabric that has meaning here too….there is a sleeping mask made from pirate material.  and the lightning mcqueen material represents that year that he would carrying around the red mcqueen car and blue mcqueen car in each hand (i have pictures of him sleeping with them.) and i always use to bribe my kids when i took them to joanns that they could pick out fabric (it was when i was selling crayon rolls/ handwarmers and i needed fabric. and i’m a hoarder) and so most of the extra squares are ones he hand picked.

see..i took pictures a year ago…

and then they sat there ……

DSC01117 i hate to say it…but as much as i miss my old house…i don’t miss my old house! DSC01125 DSC01128 my eldest daughter just reminded me that she has yet to receive a quilt……
