A Quilt for Lily Jean

It's always fun to make baby quilts, but it's even more fun when the baby is born on your birthday. Lily Jean and I share a birthday, 58 years apart. He mom is my daughter's best friend and I get to meet Lily next week. I hope she and her Mom like the quilt.

On the close up you can see one of the feathered wreaths and the elephants I quilted.

Till next time.....Happy Stitching.

Katy's Bed Quilt

Last May I posted an EQ7 drawing of a bed quilt for my daughter Katy. I finished it in time to give it to her when she was home for Christmas.

Click on the quilt to see it larger. It is huge, 93" x 102"! It took forever to quilt, but I am pleased with the results. I quilted it on my Bernina 1030. If you scroll down you can compare it to the EQ7 image.

Next up, I am scanning all my old family photos. This will be a big job, but it's fun.

Here I am at my first birthday with my sister Mary Ellen. She's a quilter too and just won the Best Hand Workmanship prize for her quilt Carmen's Garden. You can see it here.

Till next time......Happy Stitching
