It is done and it is gifted. After many years of changing directions, starting out with a pattern from an older magazine then having to make changes and adding my own ideas to change the quilt from one size to another to yet another, I have finished my middle daughters quilt and she came by a couple of weekends ago to pick it up. I could not deliver it myself as planned because my car was in the shop, where it has been a lot in this last year. I think I am going to have to break down and go car shopping soon. Car payments, bah humbug. The quilt fits my daughters king size bed and it was so large that hubs had to wrap the top around a board and hold it as high as possible so I could get a picture. He is over 6 feet tall and he was on his tippy toes.
The local quit shop, Patchwork Dreams, did the quilting. I had planned to hand quilt my daughters quilts, I have three, but time has gotten away and it was so large I decided to have it quilted so I could move on.
Ladybug was feeling left out.
This daughter is the mother of our four grandsons and we are so proud of her. She was very happy with the quilt and could not wait to get it home.
I am a mother of 3 daughters and grandmother of 8, 6 boys and 2 girls. I love to sew, paint, garden and enjoy many different crafts. Ladybug is actually my Scottie's name and she gives my hubs and I many hours of pleasure. I dream up many ideas of which a few I manage to make happen. My husband is very talented and has a few hobbies of his own so he puts up with my many hobbies and the mess they leave behind. I cannot say this blog is about anything in particular except our love of home, family and friends with a few interesting things sprinkled in here and there.
