I finally finished sewing the binding and hanging sleeve on the Cesarean Quilt earlier this week (previous post here, first post here). It took a couple more days to get photos of it and hang it in our bedroom though.
|Finished size is about 65" x 38", I chose a light grey for the binding.|
|The back, which I like just as much as the front!|
|Over our bed. Again, the red is not supposed to be blood, it's just a powerful color that holds a lot of (quilted) powerful words.|
|The label, quited in.|
I am so happy to have this quilt done. Part of me expected to magically have all of the negative feelings gone by making it...but that is not the case. However, it was wonderful to work on, and my husband and I both reviewed the whole cesarean experience and discussed everything quite a bit. And it is really nice to have all of our emotions out of ourselves, ya know? We don't need to hold onto them anymore. No matter how much we think or talk about what might have been, what happened happened, and now all we can do is deal with the left over emotional damage. This quilt was a big part of the that :-)
