Her first quilt

I have been sewing nothing.  Zilch. Nada.  On the bright side, I got to buy lots and lots of fabric in Utah while I was vacationing there.  Yeah!! And, my little sister and her family came to visit us in Texas for a week. 

It was sooo very much fun.  We already miss you.  (Even with 10 kids running around!!) 

And…..  Daughter 2 finished her first quilt!  Yeah!!!  Her grandmother had picked up some flannels to make a  baby blanket, then decided not to make it and gave it to her fabulous granddaughter.  It was the perfect first quilt project.  Daughter 2  did such an awesome job!!  And come to find out, she’s even pickier than me about fabric placement.  (That’s not so surprising for anybody who knows her.)  I think it took her longer to decide on the square placement than it took to sew the quilt together.

First Quilt

I’m so very proud of her.  One more generation of quilters! Wahoo!

Table Topper 2

Last year, my little sister did such on awesome job with our family pictures, I wanted to make her something as a thank you.  Enter Rendezvous II, a cute little topper for her square table.  She must have liked it because she has asked for another one this year.  (After I dragged her out and about through a cute little duck pond by her house for pictures this year. They turned out awesome again!)

So, this year she picked her own fabrics:

Daydream fabric

They are from the “Daydream” line by Riley Blake.  I’ve got a cute pinwheel quilt in mind that I can’t wait to start on.  I’m hoping to get it done this week.  I’ll keep you posted.
