    Smile Quilt I Made For My Daughter

    I made this quilt for my daughter, Kelly. She just started her Freshman year at GSU and is majoring in Nursing. The pattern I used is call "For Someone You Love". I machine pieced the top and hand-sewed the binding and the quilting was done by my friend, Esther. I just finished and it will be hand-delivered by me, because I don't trust the mail. She said she wanted bright pink, black and white, and in a more modern pattern ( I tend to stick to more traditional patterns). But this was really fun and the colors took me out of my comfort zone! I thoroughly enjoyed making this quilt and think she will be very happy. I also made two pillowcases and a pillowsham to match. Thank you for looking! God bless!

    It's a great quilt! So great in fact that you better put a sewn label on the back so it doesn't walk away with someone else.

    Thank you. And I did put a label on it, I just didn't post the picture with it showing on the back. I wasn't sure how to post more than one picture, as this was my first time!

    That is a beautiful quilt. I like how you use the pink and black zebra print. I have to make a Hello Kitty quilt and incorporate the zebra print in it. Still thinking and planning. Thanks for sharing.

    Awesome quilt. I especially love the border.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.
