#TBT – Journal Quilt Week 51

The journal quilt for week 51 did not get made that week (or the next). As Week 51 of my project began, I was in the hospital having just delivered a baby.  The timing had been perfect – our child was due the week after my journal quilt project was scheduled to end.  But, as has been true of her personality since then, our daughter had different ideas and she arrived early.

For the journal quilt, I took a photo of her at 3 weeks old, sleeping on a quilt that I made and covered by knitted blanket my mother made, and used that photo as the center of the quilt. I appliqued her name and birth date on the top and bottom of  borders the quilt. Since it has both her image and the very Personally Identifiable Information of her birthday (I do data governance consulting for financial services companies on the side. Can you tell?), I won’t post a picture online.
