    Here's a picture of my first quilt, made in 2006. This one is mine. Although my 5 year old granddaughter says it's hers when she's here!

    This one I made for my daughter. I finished it on January 3 of this year, it "only" took me 2 years and 1 month to make it!!! LOL!!! It's made of polar fleece, the top side just the black and white squares in checkerboard fashion, with contrasting yarn as decorative "quilting" stitched. The back is all black polar fleece, and I tied it. She absolutely loves it, as do her fiance and kids!!!

    Here are blocks 4 and 5. I haven't photographed block 6 yet. This one is going to take probably another year and a half to make!

    For first time needle turn applique, it looks like you have mastered the technique. Good for you!
    I really like that card trick quilt.

    Here is the double Irish chain that I'm currently working on for my 5 year old granddaughter. She helped a little on Sunday! I'm using the gridded fusible, which I absolutely love!!! And this one will be my first attempt at quilt-as-you-go.

    The first one I cross-stitched for my 3 year old granddaughter, and the last two are doll quilts that I made for my granddaughters, all for Christmas.

    Beautiful work! I love your appliqué especially. I must try and get my 4 1/2 year old sewing. She's just getting interested - the other day she said 'when you die Mummy, can I have all your sewing stuff?' Charming!

    Marvelous! You applique beautifully. Can't wait to see that one finished. Should I give you my address now? :-)

    Thank you so much for all the kind words!!! Regarding my granddaughter, it was actually a little frustrating for me, but I've since decided I need to just accept that when she helps me, we're not going to get very much actual work done!!!! It's so good for her (and me too) to do this together. This time is all about her, not me, so we WILL work on it together again!

    Next time she's working on it, I will try to remember to get a picture!

    That's cute!!!

    I got my granddaughters little stitching kits for Christmas. For the 5 year old, I got a simple "cross stitch" - it wasn't really cross stitch, because the stitches only went one way, but it gives her some practice with stitches and the color placement as well (it was a very colorful butterfly). For the 3 year old, I got a packet of little bear figures that have holes around the outside, and she just stitches along those holes with a plastic needle.

    The 5 year old has always been interested in crafts. Ever since she was a tiny baby, I've showed her what I've made, and from the time that she could acknowledge them, she's been very interested in them. Her mom crochets and paints and draws, so she's surrounded by crafts.

    These applique blocks are just incredible!! Where can we find the pattern and did you choose the fabrics yourself? They are so beautiful together.

    I joined an "applique club" at my LQS, but if you do a google search for "Laundry Basket Quilts", then look up "Applique Affair", you should find it!!! Mine came w/ just the pattern, and then the LQS kitted the fabrics, so I bought the kit as well.
