My Quilt Square

I posted last week about the Quilt Square for a wonderful Mama who is welcoming a new baby very soon.

Here it is. I did not have a hoop small enough so I used freehand to embroider. It still turned out great, but the hoop really does help that extra bit.

The Mama has a photo of her and her daughter and when I saw this drawing it made me think of them.

Just as a woman's heart knows how and when to pump, her lungs to inhale, and
her hand to pull back from fire, so she knows when and how to give birth.

Blessings, love and strength to you Mama Owlet.

I'll be the first to admit that I was awestruck

in 17 years i've never seen her wield a needle and thread then she popped this out.

So simple so perfect
