One blessed grandma had both a granddaughter and a grandson due this summer. She was great in getting quilts made for each of them before they arrived.
This is a beautiful fabric line in reds and tans with sweet small floral prints. It is really pretty!
And the little man has a bright quilt with trucks and signs and all sorts of fun toys to see.
Both quilts are backed with minkee and are lightly quilted at her request. They are so cuddly! And the baby pictures have been so very cute!
This quilt is a personal pattern by the maker and features the initial of her granddaughter’s first name.
I love the script “E”! Darling fabrics are girly but not baby style for this newly-turned 3 year old. (sorry for the blurry photo)
The backing of the quilt is minky fabric and lightly quilted so that it still is cuddly and drapes. You should see Miss E modeling with the quilt! 🙂
Last week L had 2 small projects for me. A twister tablerunner that is just dynamic in her brights with a black border. I want to show you the full top even though this photo is blurry. Sorry!
The colors of the fabrics are just fantastic!
I gave the border a leafy bud design and the center has a meander.
Her second project is a larger wallhanging, about 40″ square. I just love the 3-D pinwheels made with prairie points! She’ll tack them down now that the quilting is done.
A light-medium density meander in the center helps the pinwheels stand out and I added a circular quilting design to the borders.
This quilt has some personal attachments so I was honored to quilt this for C.
We were both in this block exchange and it was such an encouragement to me to see her quilt top completed! Now I want to get to mine. 🙂
C was interested in having her quilt finished and finished quickly so chose a medium meander for the quilting. I used a variegated light green thread which blended well with all the blocks and especially with her sashing & border.
I love the texture that quilting gives to a piece! Thanks, C!! And for your special visit. 😉
