    Would it be OK to post pictures of a baby quilt my two daughters made?

    The youngest daughter did all the cross stitched pictures and the elder daughter set the pictures together did the quilting. They just recently sent pictures to let me see how it turned out.

    The cross stitching was done on the smallest weave possible (maybe Aida??) and are the Joan Walsh Anglund alphabet girls.

    of course you can. the Pictures forum is for quilt related pictures, whether you made the item yourself or you are posting someone else's creation.

    The camera must not have been doing well, because the real quality of this quilt is "heirloom" without a doubt.

    First, think how many hours it took to do the cross stitching. Then see that the quilt was hand pieced and hand quilted. I will start with a tiny block showing the "R," Then show a granddaughter holding the whole quilt.

    Later maybe I can post other pictures to show what they did.

    This is a photo of the bottom part of the baby quilt. Maybe you can see enough of it to understand why it might take a long time to finish.

    Excellent labor of love. Would they be home schooled by any chance? Sometimes, there is such a simplicity and appreciation for hand made items that these kids shine in their learning and achievements and an eagerness to learn and to do their very best! What a blessing for you to be able to share your love of quilting and needlework with them!
    Telll them what a great job they did, beautiful work, all of it and a treasured keepsade for that baby.

    BTW, I forgot to tell you "that baby" is four years old now, but she still loves her new quilt. Maybe she can pass it on to her baby one day.

    You make a very interesting observation here. I would never have guessed that because a child loves hand work that she could be homeschooled, but... So far two generations of kids in our family are homeschooled. With our children, we did it the hard way--laboring night and day to finish every page of every course book. I was a certified public school teacher k-12 and wanted them to know everything there was to know, but there were days (without a TV) when the kids needed something else to do. The choices were either to read a book or do something with their hands. They all have done well in the work-a-day world and now they are homeschooling their children. Our second son (just now 37) was written up in NYT center magazine section last month (top 100 business men in the nation) for his accomplishments with KPMG auditing and consulting firm

    So far three of the grandchildren have done well in college and have good jobs. I am not at all ashamed of their learning abilities, and I do not think they have been socially deprived as some accuse homeschoolers of being. I pray that I am not proud of them--just pleased and satisfied they have done well.

    Thanks for letting me share the quilt photos and thanks for looking.

    How blessed you are! The girls' work is excellent.

    On a side note, I homeschooled my five kids and though it wasn't easy, I don't regret any of it.

    It is beautiful! It is definitely A LOT of work. Anyone who cross stitches can testify to that...really, it's gorgeous. I'm just wondering, if two girls worked on it, who is going to get it in the long run....Did they make it for someone else?

    And BTW, I have 5 and we home schooled and are home schooling the two still at home. The oldest three are in college in the US and doing fine--two on their master's degrees and one a jr. in Criminal Justice....the younger two help me with quilts. (among other things like schoolwork, karate, choir, teaching English, etc.)

    Oh my goodness that little quilt will be a treasured heirloom.
    They did an fabulous job. If they are this good now, I can only
    imagine what they will do when they are older.
    The quilt is beautiful.
