    DGD Princess Quilt - Completed

    You were there when I needed reassurance about this quilt, so I would love for you to see the completed quilt, pillow sham and pillowcase. Here is the previous post

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/main-f1...e-t232304.html

    It was a struggle to complete this. Lots of problems w/thread breaking, loops on the back. Got so that I didn't want to work on it. I used metallic threads on all of the dresses (it hardly shows). Then I put about 600 various sized and colored hot-fix crystals on the dresses in the center panel. Just got back from Florida where we celebrated a belated Christmas and a lovely trip to Disney World. DH, DS (youngest and Mackenze's dad) and Mackenze w/quilt.

    How very sweet your quilt is. The little princess looks happy with it too.

    I'm glad you made it. The smile on her face makes it all worth it I hope.

    I told her when we left Florida that when she was under the quilt, that she was getting a hug from me.

    That is one happy little girl with her beautiful princess quilt. Good job Grandma~ she'll remember it forever. It turned out perfect.

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Look at the smile on her face! It tells the whole story. You did a wonderful job on it.
