Be The Good

I wanted to have my Be The Good quilt to hang on the wall this January as my family and I were looking ahead to the new year and setting goals.  So in true Bailey fashion I put it off to the last minute to get it quilted and bond.  Maybe Alex is right when he says, "If you wait to the last minute it only takes a minute."  Well, it took more than a minute but on Dec. 30th and 31st I quilted and bond this little quilt.
Therefore I was able to put it up when I took down the Christmas row quilt.  Hope it's not so subtle message sinks in and my family looks for the good in the world and does their best be a part of that good.  (not that they aren't good now, just looking to do a little better in the new year.)

  1. Love it! There was a little gal that lived just down the road from us in Idaho. She spent a lot of time at our house with our daughter when they were growing up....her motto was "The Last Minute is the Best Minute!" Have a great year!

  2. This is fabulous. I love the double meaning, the use of the black prints in the background, and the orange letters. What a great family motto! Mine seems to be more like "Make your bed and pick up your dirty socks!" (did I mention I have boys?)

  3. Great family message Em. I also like the idea of having something new to put up, when the house feels so empty after taking Christmas down.
