I suppose he is full grown now, but he sure was a sweet and beautiful puppy.
What a feel good story. And, such beautiful quilts. I coudn't pick a favorite as I like them all. The grandfather will surely be amazed with them all and of course the gr.d.'s will be thrilled. How long did it take to make these?
I would simply use a frame, so it looks like a window. That way each animal will"pop" . test out using black for the window frame
Use a # 2 pencil
How very sweet. I love the stories you shared. I hope it brings them hugs from grandpa for a very long time. The 9-patch is my very favorite. But, they are all very special.
Love the colors! So fresh and pretty. Good job!
Glad you found us. Hope you enjoy all the info and friendship you can find here
Hi agrevemberg, My suggestion would be a sampler. You could incorporate different aspects of his service that way. And you could also include a t-shirt, patch or part of a uniform, pictures, symbols. Anything really. You might also be able to find free images on the net to use.
I look forward to seeing what you come up with.
www.patternpile.com is a pattern for "Nautical anchor quilt blocks - free quilting tutorial. It shows the block in white and light blue but I have seen this quilt done in white and navy and it was stunning. I don't know if this will help. Good luck.
If your Mom belonged to a quilt guild they may do a "yard" sale and give you the money. We did that and the ladies son got a check for $20,600.00. He was speechless!!
You can do this, do log cabin, scrappy and easy ones to begin. It is so much fun when you don't get yourself frustrated!
Aw, what beautiful inspiration. And, you got to quilt with four generations of quilters in your family (including you). It doesn't get any better then that. Thank you for sharing your story.
And thank you for your husbands service to our country. (And for all of your sacrifices.)
Sweet, I'm glad you didn't give up. My first quilts were a patchwork and a rail fence. And, the biggest lesson I learned is that cutting accuracy is VERY important. I look forward to seeing your pictures sometime.

It's a log cabin design. You would need to measure the width and using the picture as a pattern, design your colors/prints around that.
I made my Grandson one, I googled the minecraft characters then cut my squares according to the character, it turned out ok but I did cut the squares to large and the quilt was entirely to large, but he loved it said he would be able to
wrap up in it after he was 7 feet tall,lol
Hi from southern Alberta. Yes you can make the ribbons in to a quilted wall hanging. I have done many of them.
She (Toni Whitney) just put out a red fox pattern. I have started tracing as fast as I can!
