My first completed quilt!!!



Last week, right before all that stuff happened with Madi...I had such a fun night with a bunch of ladies. We all brought our machines and made shaggy raggy quilts. They are so easy and so cute!

Here is mine. Now it has a home on the end of Madi's bed and I love having my very own homemade quilt to look at every time I walk by...plus Madi is impressed I made it...she watched me cut all the fabric for it.

Speaking of Madi...she is doing great. Her numbers are really getting in the area that they should be and you can tell she has more energy. She is such a sweet thing and is still not complaining at all...she likes that fact that Nick Jonas from the Jonas Brothers also has Type 1 Diabetes and we have read his story that is a lot like hers. Now she wants their CD.

I am on the lookout for a website or some program, so that for a meal I make I can type in the ingredients and it will tell me the nutrition facts...on night I may make chili or say a Tuna Casserole.

Love the quilt! The colors are so pretty. You must share how to make one with someone who has a machine and has not used it yet.

So glad to hear Madi is doing so much better! I know how hard all of this must have been on you.

My mother found out about 7 years ago she has diabetes...She has a spur in her nose and the doctors could not figure why she was bleeding so much...It bleed for three full days and then when they found out she was told to go to her doctor that Monday and they did blood work on her and found this out...So she had a double whammy that week. They said if she had not got the nose to stop bleeding she would have bled to death. So I know it was hard on you as that weekend was hard on our family.

I LOVE your quilt! It is just beautiful. Did you just cut out squares and sew them together for it? I have never attempted anything like that but I do think I could cut out squares and sew them....please do tell.

Your quilt is darling! I also like making rag quilts.

My daughter was diagnosed with diabetes when she was 4 1/2 years old. She is now 16. Those first days are as clear to me now as they were back then.

If there is ANYTHING that I can do to help you as your adjust, please email me! Seriously. It can be very overwhelming and scary at times.
