Kisses and Hugs

April A-Z Challenge: K is for Kisses and Hugs

I recently finished this quilt top. I started these X and O blocks several years ago. This is one of my UFOs that I want to finish!! So I am making progress on that goal.

I added the Love and the je t'aime (French for "I love you") on the bottom and that really made the quilt, in my opinion. I was bummed that my "je t'aime" ended up crooked-y, but once it got all assembled, I decided I love it that way! It gives the quilt a jaunty, playful look, I think.

Not sure if I will ever have any grandchildren, but this one just might be worth saving for a grand-baby. (I majored in French, after all.)

What a great quilt. I too love the crooked "je t'aime" at the bottom. I really like the apple fabric as a border. I am reading one of the books you recommended, Neither Wolf Nor Dog. What a powerful book. I am not sure I will "get" everything by just reading it one time.

I too love the crooked "je t'aime" at the bottom. goes with the wonky squares and rectangles! Such a fun quilt. Yes, you should finish it and then keep it. Who knows, the right opportunity will pop up and you'll have the quilt. I really love this one!

...Duh-- the wonky squares and rectangles--the hugs of the hugs and kisses.
