    This is a beautiful quilt that my DGD picked out the pattern "Charms Thursday", and the fabric. She got introduced to the rotary cutter this time with supervision (of course). She did all the piecing of the blocks and decided to follow the pattern's layout. I quilted it for her on my Janome 6600, did the binding and label. She named the quilt and was very proud of herself. And of course being her Grandmother, I can only say " I have a new quilting buddy". I really enjoyed the time we spent together doing this, that is what memories are made of, for both of us!

    Again, the iron-on label transfer, coloured and heat set.

    My DGD loved the black & white concept, with a hint of red throughout.

    Amazing, what a wonderful quilt!

    I'm quilting with my little ones too. That's our girly time, they don't want to watch TV. We sew and listen to Books on CD.

    I'm glad you have a quilting buddy, you create wonderful memories.

    Thanks for sharing,

    What a wonderful outcome to time spent with your DGD. I can hardly wait until mine are old enough to do something like this. Hopefully at least one of them will be interested in Granny's hobbies.

    So nice that you and your DGD were able to do this. She will remember it forever. Some memories don't fade.

    My 16 year old granddaughter is supposed to visit me for a month this summer. She has not-too-enthusiastically agreed to make herself a quilt. I gave her a second chance to say 'NO, I don't want to do that.' and she said she'd do it.

    We MIGHT have a great time this summer...but we might not. Only time will tell.

    Thankyou for the generous compliments. No this isn't her first quilt, but, it is her first bed quilt. She has made a couple log cabin pillows for her DM and a doll blankie. She is 15 and a half now but started sewing with me for about 4 years. She doesn't sew with me often but when we do, we sure do have fun.

    Now that's quality time! I sure hope my GD wants to sew as she grows up.
