    This week I have had the blessing of teaching my oldest DGD to make a quilt. We chose the "ten minute block" and she chose the fabrics. I am proud of her patience and diligence. She seems to be enjoying our time together!

    Let your GD know I saved an image of her quilt for color inspiration. A beautiful example of meshing batiques together to enhance each other.
