Ever since I started this blog, Grace, my 11 year old daughter has been asking, "When are you going to put MY quilt on your blog?" So here it is. Grace started this quilt when she was 9. It took her a very long time to piece it. Once all the blocks were made, it "fermented" for quite awhile so that all the fabrics could blend properly. Then Grace sewed the blocks into rows and I sewed the rows into a quilt top and added the borders. We loaded it onto my longarm and Grace took it from there. She did a very nice job quilting it and as soon as it was done, we took it off the machine, put on the binding and she's been sleeping with it ever since. It was finished last February, right around the time that my new kitchen was finished, so we had to get both into the picture. So Grace...congratulations on making a beautiful quilt...I'm sure you'll enjoy it for many years to come. I loved working with you to make it and that will always be a memory I cherish. Thanks for being a quilter. I love you.
