Today we are excited to release another new pattern….and the first pattern in a series of patterns that I put together for a trip of a lifetime that I was able to take last spring.
I took my son, who was graduating from high school, and we went to stay Europe!
We stayed with my brother, who lives in Amsterdam…and then did some traveling.
Our first stop was…Paris!!!
My youngest daughter, Ruth, loves Paris.
And I mean LOVES Paris.
Her room is decorated with all things French….and most days she wears a beret to school.
…and her Eiffel Tower necklace.
So, she was pretty jealous that we were going to see Paris without her.
That’s when we decided to finish up a Paris inspired quilt that we had started months before.
The idea was to finish up this giant heart quilt. Then I would take it with me all the way to the top the Eiffel Tower and finally bring it back home full of French experience and Ruth could use it until she gets a chance to visit the Eiffel Tower herself.
Ruth had chosen all the fabric and we stitched it up into a giant heart…because….as I said…she LOVES Paris.
And I packed that quilt in my suitcase on the plane to Amsterdam.
And then in bag on the train to Paris.
And then in my suitcase on my back to the top of the Eiffel Tower….and all over Paris!
And…all while wearing a beret…just like Ruth wanted. 🙂
The Ruth Loves Paris Quilt Pattern is a quick sew and perfect for beginners.
Made up of all squares and a handful of half square triangles it comes together in a hurry.
And is perfect to showcase whatever it is that whoever is receiving the quilt loves.
The heart can be filled with Harry Potter prints, Halloween prints, Star Wars prints, unicorn prints, etc.
But in this case…it is filled with Paris inspired prints:
You can get the Ruth Loves Paris PDF Quilt Pattern here in our shop and whip up a quilt for someone who is dreaming of their own adventure…real or ficticious. 🙂
PS: I just had to include two more pictures in this post….the first is my son, my brother, and I climbing the steps up to the top of the Eiffel Tower…little did we know how many steps it would be!
But I wouldn’t change it for the world. It was raining and at night and BEAUTIFUL!
I am terrified of heights and was scared to death but the climb was worth the view…and the experience with these two.
The second picture is this:
My son, hanging our with his sisters quilt, waiting for his mom to be ready to take a picture.
This sums up a lot of his vacation….well that and him at museums…with his mom….waiting for her to take pictures. 🙂
I will never forget any of this. It is in my heart forever.
