Rylee's first quilt

Rylee, my little grand daughter made her first quilt a few weeks ago and came last week to quilt it.. we had so much fun, we had to put chairs across the floor in front of the machine so she could reach it and have a way to walk along as quilting. She really did most of the quilting herself... she wanted some cutie stuff in some of the circles so did a cupcake, a flower and a lollipop, then she did swirls in the rest of them. She is so fun, crafty and creative. She is so proud of her quilt... Hopefully this weekend I can get the binding made and sewn on for her.
Goodness I started this little stitchery a good while ago and just remembered I had it. I only had a few things left to stitch on it so it was done in about 20 minutes, why didn't I just do it way back when, probably started something else and got side track. I'm thinking about a scrappy border or maybe just 2 small borders around it and making it a little wall hanging.

Hi Charlene... it was good talking to you yesterday!
And now a few customer quilts to share.

  7. I just had another thought. If you want to send me some contact info for your quilting services I can add that as well to the blog.

  8. What a fun project to do together! Your granddaughter looks so happy. I'm sure this is stored in her memory bank!

  9. Rylee's quilt is darling. Here comes another quilter, look out world. Your little stitchery is cute. I wonder sometimes what makes me put something like that down and not finish it. Just gets forgotten I guess.

  10. Oh, can I be your granddaughter and come use your machine, too? How special for her! And has everyone else already finished their Christmas projects?
