Quilt for my Great-Granddaughter
When Isabel was born in 2006 I was going through some health and work related issues, so I did not get to start the quilt right away. I eventually started a quilt that I bought in a kit with minimal instructions. It was in 2.5 inch strips with wild and funky colors that I thought she would enjoy. Well, I really messed up that pattern and would put it down and pick it up trying to fix the mess I had made. Then I finally realized that it was too wonky and as a matter of fact, way too small now that she was 8 years old! So, I started over with a modified coin quilt as you go that I made from fat quarters. The quilting world had changed so much while I wasn't looking and I really liked the pre-cuts, the colors and the freedom to create a one of a kind quilt with a design on the back as well as the front. I finally finished it this week and will mail it to her for her 9th birthday, as soon as I make a doll quilt for her from some parts of the original wonky quilt. I have made quilts for my daughter, two grandsons and now my great granddaughter and feel very blessed to be able to share my work with you.
