This is a baby quilt that I made for a friend who was having a little girl close to Valentines Day could not resist the cute material it was perfect! I used raw edge applique for the flowers, so they will fray out a little when washed.
This is the one I made for Noah I cheated a little by finding a pre-printed panel but it was perfect for this little guy and if he is anything like his big brother he will be operating one of these machines at a young age.I machined quilted using a variegated thread matching the colors in the material did some hand quilting using a bigger stitch length pieced the back of quilt using more of the cute materials.
For Hadley I made this wall hanging. I looked through many books taking little ideas from them and putting it together. One of the sayings I got was from this site so if you like Homespun & Primitive patterns go check her out. www.chestnutjunction.com.
I have always loved quilts but when I got to know Dennis's grandmother Afton I became I guess you can say obsessed with them. I am sure she would be shocked to see the huge quilting machines that they have now a days she would hand quilt her own sometimes she would take them down to the senior citizens center and have her friends help her quilt them I know she made a quilt for each of her grandchildren and more. At Kacy's wedding we displayed some of her quilts and some from other grandmothers from the other side of the family it was wonderful to see their work and have a little piece of them their that day.
