We have eight grandchildren as of now, and I have made quilts for each of them. Starting with the oldest I will show their quilts.
She is a sweetie, and I enjoy her company. We've had some fun times when Grandpa takes the boys trick- or-treating and we get to answer the door..Actually she does that usually, but we enjoy the sights together. We have also carved pumpkins together with her brothers--that's fun too. Brit has always been a girly girl--she really loved dolls when she was little. She likes to cook, and craft--she makes her own jewelry! She enjoys hanging out with her friends--she always has lots of them.
Here I had cut it out. I love the way we cut out quilts these days--it's so fast. (Is my age showing?)
Here the blocks are being sewn.
With the blocks assembled and borders on, the quilting begins---I love my Janome. Best present my hubby ever gave me. (I did get to pick it out though.) I almost didn't get it because of the pricy price. My hubby didn't mind the price, but I did. Every time I sew, I say,"I LOVE my Janome!"
It's almost completely quilted here. The toy chest/ottoman is the right height for me to do my quilting without back strain. And ......here it is.
I named it "Laffy Taffy".
This isn't such a great picture of it. I like to photograph them outside when I can. There, the lighting is better than a flash. I think the flash just washes out the colors and texture.
