Kathy's Project

My daughter, Kathy, asked me to help her with a project she needed for Nursing School.  It had to be "creative" and tell the story of her journey to become an RN.  It also had to show her future goals.  She had decided to make a "quilt".....designed and finished in 10 days!  Between classes, exams, full time job, and three girls still at home, plus studying and maybe a little sleep.

 She did it!!  We raided my stash and supplies and since she doesn't really sew and isn't a quilter (yet), I suggested fusing the whole thing.

So, this little quiltlet shows the road from CNA to LPN, to RN with her BRN to be achieved in the future.  A little pleat on the curves became 'speed bumps', a flower button by the rest area sign,  beads representing the rocky road, burning the candle at both ends, and lots of other little things to show her journey.  She has worked really hard (and almost quit a few times) to reach her goal.  We are so proud of her!
