    Baby Quilt for Great Granddaughter

    I made this quilt for my great granddaughter. I had never made a quilt this large before but wanted it to be special. I used the Minkee and had some difficulties, but it turned our better than I had hoped for. My great granddaughter's Daddy is a pilot therefore I wanted something with planes on it. I did my own quilting on it with the Pennywinkle mid arm quilter. This was the first thing I had ever quilted too. My Granddaughter loved it which was the important thing.

    What a lovely choice of fabrics and I love the tie in to planes which remind her of her dads passion. Great job. Thank you for sharing.
    Desiderata (Max Ehrmann) - Walk placidly amid the noise and haste and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.
