{Stella walks in rainbow houses quilt}

{Stella walks in rainbow houses quilt} finally is completed! Total of 100 houses within this quilt.  When I started quilting I knew in my mind that I  wanted to make a quilt per year for Stella. Each year has a different theme and it represents her in the time she was at. This year, I asked her what she has in mind. She answered me {rainbow}. It took me a few weeks to decided what to make then later I decided to make her a {rainbow houses quilt}.

In the back for this quilt I used 1.5" squares and pieced {STELLA} on the back. As always, I don't sign my quilts. Do you sign your quilts? I am still debated if I should sign quilts that I make.

 When Stella told me she doesn't like gray my heart rate went up a little bit! Then I asked her why, she told me it doesn't have any {color}. I tried to convince her that {gray} is very popular in making quilts and it helps to make the quilts look {amazing}. She replied { Are you sure, mom?}

Nothing like making a quilt for someone that we love! Each house represent a hope and a memory that I have about Stella. Like every mother we wish the best for our child and deep in  our heart we love them and wish they healthy and well being. 

The biggest challenging on this quilt still is the quilting part! Somewhat I need to try to master this skill as time goes! I used loops pattern for this quilt and it turn out just what in my mind!

She loves it! She loves it! Up she jump high and enjoy this new quilt addition to her own possessions. I do hope she will pass on these quilts I made for her to her child someday when she is ready!

 Her feet and mine feet!


Someday when she leaves the home that full of memories and loves she will be able to take these quilts with her. She will be able to tell stories behind each quilt and the memories that she has in her little mind.  She is loved and given!

    I sign the quilts I make for family, just another little piece of love in them, and the memory.
