    Avianna - your quilt is beautiful!!! I hope you are proud of your work and I can only think that your friend is going to love receiving this gift that you put so much thought into. That's true friendship. I have a quilt that was made by a friend of my you has since died and although she did not make it "for me" I feel her hands and heart every time I cuddle under it. Good job!!!!

    The look on her face says it all! Pride! As well, she should be! She did an awesome job on a beautiful quilt. Now that she's got the "bug", can't wait to see more of her work!

    How precious, she did a marvellous job and you've started her on the way to many quilting adventures. Her friend will be so thrilled and keep it to show her children. What a blessing for both of them, to give and to receive.Looks like she had fun with the whole process, especially the fmq!

    Please let Avianna know that I think she is the greatest 12 year old! She has a heart of gold to want to make something so special for her friend. The quilt is lovely, but Avianna is more lovely.....inside and out! I know you are so proud of her!

    She did a beautiful job, I think her FM quilting is better than mine! Congratulations on a job beautifully done!
    Always in Stitches,

    So blessed in the opportunity of life, the gifts of nature, and the choice to do good to others. I'm thankful for this day.

    The quilt is as pretty as your precious grandaughter! This is a great job for a 12 year old! Please tell her she made a lovely quilt, and to keep up the good work. I love to see the young ones taking an interest in quilting.

    Avianna wanted to make a birthday gift for her friend, and decided a quilt would be fun. She has made a few projects before, but they have been very small, and only partially done by her. This was basically a Jelly Roll Race 1600" quilt, but using scraps from my stash, and not quite the right size.

    We just looked for fabrics in the girl's favorite colors (purple and green), and cut them up the width of my ruler. Some fabrics were only fat quarters, some yardage, and some true scraps.

    It only took her about an hour to sew the top. Then we realized in the haste to get the top done, I had neglected to trim the selvedges from one of the fabrics, and it showed. So, she got to do applique for the first time!

    Then she did FMQ for the first time, that took a couple hours.

    The binding was the part that bogged her down, she really didn't care for it too much. So, she brought it to my house and we sat on the couch together and starting at opposite ends, got it done.

    She will give it to her friend on Thursday.
    Your DGD did a great job. And you did a great job of passing on your love of quilting too.
