Blogger’s Quilt Festival #3

Amy over at Amy’s Creative Side has organized another online quilt festival.  You can click on this button to get to the list of, so far, 475 links.  image Each one will take you to an individual blog, showcasing one quilt and the story behind it from the blogger.  I can spend literally hours at a time reading these posts and drooling over the quilts.  But what usually happens is this:
I click on a link………I read the post………I look at the quilt………Then I start reading everything the blogger has written!  Suffice it to say, it is taking me a while to get through that list!
Here’s the quilt I made for our 13-month-old granddaughter, Georgia:
first completed block
The first completed square --  6”, machine pieced, hand appliqu├ęd and hand embroidered

I made this quilt while my husband and I were living in Honduras.   My sweet daughter-in-law picked out the beautiful red and pink fabrics and gave me free reign as far as the pattern.
 Quilt Top - Copy 
Finished top.
I decided on a very traditional pattern, “Grandmother’s Fan” because my daughter-in-law and son love all things old.  (Guess that’s why they love me!)  I liked how it turned out and loved doing all the hand work on it.
Georgia & Quilt 3
So, now it’s quilted and washed and ready for Georgia…she loves it!  Can you tell? :)

Mother’s Day…Remembering

Thinking of my sweet mama on Mother’s Day. She’s been gone for 33 years and I still miss her so much.
