This quilt is very near and dear to my heart, as I made it with my son Rowan in mind. Without getting too far into the details of everything, I will just say that Rowan was born very early (at 26 weeks to be exact), after ten weeks of bedrest. The going was rough for quite some time. He needed a lot of help, especially with his under-developed lungs. We weren’t able to bring him home with us until he was 6 months old, and this was with a trach, home ventilator (breathing machine), and feeding tube. He remained on the breathing machine at home until he was nearly two years old. So needless to say, I thought about this word a lot:
Here are a few pics of our journey:
both of the above pictures were taken last fall, around Halloween.
And here he is helping me with the quilt’s photoshoot!
These days, I can finally “breathe” a little easier seeing that he is doing okay, and we are about to celebrate birthday number 3! I hope you enjoyed my post, and I really hope you enjoy all of the other fantastic quilts at the blogger’s quilt festival.
