    Ok. This is Chloe's Catherdral Window. Chloe is my granddaughter by adoption. She is now 5. Her favorite color is bright apple green. (Not my color of choice.) I have tried to pick the jewels randomly but sometimes that was a trick. After buying several patterns to start with that matched and looked good together, I decided I needed a few more. Looking in my stash, I found fabrics from clothes I had made for her Daddy, 28 years ago. So, you know I had to add them to the quilt. Then all the penguins that I had used to make her dresses and pillowcases had to be added. So now the quilt has special memories and meaning as I quilt.

    I am about quarter the way done but just had to show you all.

    That is just beautiful. I'm a quarter of the way on mine. They sure do take a lot of time but are so worth it.

    That's going to be a true labor of love! You're doing a great job on it, but I be you will never want to see that color again for a really long time, after working so closely with it for so long! Very loving of you to do it for her!!!

    Such a beautiful green. Your Granddaughter will love it; especially with the added memory pieces. Thank you for sharing.
