    Georgies Quilt

    This is not a good picture but you probably get the idea.
    I asked my youngest daughter if she wonted a new quilt for her 7 mth old baby girl.
    "Yes please mum , but I only like white on white and scalloped edges please, Can I have it by the Weekend?"
    Sure, I can do that" was my answer, never done scalloped edges before and had no template at the time, so I gave it a go and was not too dissapointed with the result.
    What could you suggest I do for the next time?

    Do just what you did this time! I would never thought to do an all white for a baby, but then why not. Beautiful!!

    Aren't our kids funny. You did a fantastic job! It's just beautiful. I would never guess it's your first time doing scalloped edges. The little embroderies are a perfect touch.

    Sew elegant. Our kids think that Moms can do anything, boy, do we try to prove them right. In this instance you have proven your daughter correct. You have done a MAG FIN A CENT job. Congratulations. Be careful no telling what she will ask for next. I am sure that you will be able to provide what ever it is. BrendaK

    Perfect, it's beautiful. And to think you did it in less than a week. It would have taken me a month to plan out what I could do with a white on white. You must have a designing mind.
