May Freebie! Crosses of Ryan & Tarah BOM Block 1

Our apologies for the delay. Mom had this all done on time and I just couldn't get the time in front of my computer to get it all loaded. Amazing what an out of town for 2 weeks hubby and sudden upheaval in your daily routines can do to you!

This month we are kicking off the first of 12 blocks in our first BOM. "Crosses of Ryan and Tarah" will be a series of 12 embroidered elegant cross designs, finished into a beautiful quilt top.

Our inspiration for this piece comes from my older brother, my mother's oldest son, Ryan, and his wife, Tarah, who have been married since 1989. They were junior high and high school sweethearts, marrying right after graduation. They have 5 children, my nieces Autumn, Summer, Winter, and Spring, and my nephew, Christian (aka "Goob").  (Yes, those really are their names!) This past fall, Autumn and her husband celebrated the birth of their first child, and my brother became a grandpa at age 40. (and yes, we love to tease him for that!) Through the years, Ryan and Tarah have been a living testament of a Godly marriage for all who know them. It seemed only fitting to celebrate that with this theme. Faith has certainly been a cornerstone of their family.  

We hope you enjoy our latest project and continue to follow us in the coming months!
