    Whooo family owl quilt.

    My granddaughter started this quilt making the 9-patches in 2014. She wanted owls to represent her family. I sewed her 9 patches together, appliquéd the owls and finished it for Christmas. I think you can tell she loved it.

    That is adorable. No wonder she is smiling while displaying the quilt she helped make. I wish that my Grandmother quilted. It was her sister who taught me to love to quilt.

    Priceless. What a gift you have given her. The fact that she worked on this with her grandmother is awesome. I bet she will have this forever. The quilt is almost as adorable as she is. Great work Grandma.

    Beautiful!! Oh and the quilt too! You and your granddaughter did a wonderful job on the quilt and I know that the time spent together makes it even more precious. I love the pattern that she chose.

    Your granddaughter is a real cutie, & you can see she already treasures the quilt grandma helped her make! And grandma's quilting is flawless! Just beautiful!

    What a lovely picture! I am sure she will treasure it always. Be sure to give her a copy of this picture too. I think in years to come it will be treasured too.

    She is adorable and so is the quilt. I absolutely love all the fabric choices and all the quilting designs. This quilt is a winner.

    love the colors and great quilting too
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.
