    Granddaughter's Birthday Lap Quilt

    I made this for my granddaughter who will be seven this week. Her Mom 'sneaked' her outgrown clothes to me over a year ago and I just now got around to making the quilt. I love the pattern and made the dresses cut from her old clothes.

    I added some applique with decorations cut from the original items, including tags and labels. The quilt was a bit thick where the dresses (with heat and bond) were so I did not quilt over them but added white heart buttons to them.

    I gave it to her today and she was remembering what the dresses had originally been. It was a good gift for her!

    Such a cute idea, and she looks just as happy as a clam! Her smile made me smile before I even noticed the quilt. lol
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    That is so clever and think how she will be able to identify everyone of those clothes she use to wear!

    Amazing how great their memories are, huh. I've told my grandchildren that most fabric has memory. It came from an article of clothing, or was scraps from another quilt or scraps from another sewing project. Each time I make a quilt, I challenge them to see which fabrics they remember. It's really fun. Thanks for sharing your story, your beautiful grand daughter and your quilt.
