    14 yr olds new zebra quilt

    I have been away far to long. My DGD, turned 14 in March and she wanted to change her room to Zebra design. Her Mom and Dad helped her make a new headboard and she covered her desk chair with zebra fur. So I brought her a number of fabrics to make a jelly roll quilt. She did all the work on it, I just quilted it in the end. So please take a look at her new room and darling quilt. We also did some decopage (sp) on her dresser and painted it. We made pillows while I was there visiting. She made the brown pillows last year. She has won many awards for quilting, horse shows, track and now her artwork. Great kid to be around. Her cousin is getting married in Aug. and she was my daughters flower girl so we also made a quilt for her that I have to quilt now. We kept very busy!!!!! I also had baseball games to go see for her brother. Tee Hee!!! He made 3 pillow cases too. I got a few pillows for his bed too.

    You 2 have wow'd it out. My DGD is 6 and wants to do her walls in Zebra strips. Not happening. They live in a Managers house on the Thorough Bred horse farm, where our son-in -law is a division manager. So they can't.
    Your DGD and you have made an awesome room! She sounds like a very rounded and creative young lady!

    Love the zebra quilt, and it is great to start kids early on piecing and quilting. You both did a great job, and I'll bet it was fun working on it together, too.

    Great room ... the dresser drawers are perfect!

    One thing missing ... Grandma could surprise her with ...... a zebra rug.
    (perhaps layers chenilled? or quilted?)

    That sure is zebra! Glad your DGD is getting 'into' quilting. You will both have memories of this for the rest of your lives. You must be very proud of her!

    Spectacular! If she is that talented (even with help from Grandma) at 14 she is going to be amazing when she's all grown up! And I love your DGS pillowcases too!

    I really like her take on the jelly roll quilt. It has something that a lot of the others don't

    She did a great job on her quilt. How fun her room is now. I bet she loves hanging out in there. Where's the study desk?

    The zebra room is cute, but the rock chalk jayhawk room, I really like his decorating theme. Too bad we couldn't see more of his quilt.
