Every year I make quilts for graduating high school seniors at my church.
This year....my son is one of them!
He has developmental delays so it is a REAL occassion in our lives.
When I asked him what color he'd like his quilt to be....
he surprised me.
"Can I have a sports themed quilt?"
My spirits SUNK.
What do you imagine when someone says sports theme??
That's where my mind went.
How am I going to do the GOOD mom thing
and still make a quilt that I'll be happy making???
I began by making some blocks.
stripes, shirts, plaids, greens, blues...little bit of red....
Great BOY fabrics!
I have quite a collection of shirts and stripes.
Here's the DREADED fabric requested.
(He plays these three sports
in a league called "challenger".
It's the BEST thing for kids with disabilities!!)
Will I add this fabric around the outside???
I bet lots of you LIKE this fabric
and then there's the REST of you
who think I'm a terrible mother.
I'd love to know where YOU would put it.
The minute I hit publish I started feeling bad.
I think writing this post was VERY GOOD medicine for me.
Feeling like I need to get my priorities straight.
I will HIGHLIGHT the fabric he wants
and think about how HAPPY he will be.
Thanks for the kick in the pants blog.
When we write...we bleed sometimes.
