What a Good Grandmother!



Yesterday I went to a friend's house and what a show and tell she had! She has made quilt (BIG quilts!) for all her family members for Christmas. They are all beautiful, but I LOVED what she's making for her 3 year old granddaughter! 

In the picture above its the gorgeous tuffet (stool) she has made. It's sitting on its side here, but it has adorable wooden turned legs. Do you see that quilted gray circle below it? That's being made into a rug. 



The gray top of the rug and the backing are both flannel. She'll be using fabric matching the tuffet to make the clothing in the pattern. And if that's not enough...




...there is a quilt to match!!! OMG! I wish she were my grandmother - haha! The quilt pattern is Gimme Five Supersize. She has a longarm machine and does her own quilting. She also makes beautiful heirloom dresses for the same granddaughter. What a lucky little girl!

I'll have to admit I didn't get any machine quilting done yesterday. I went out to lunch with friends and then there was the visit afterward and then the day just got away with me. Today hand quilting the Lollypop Tree project is up and I already have it beside me. As soon as I hit 'publish' on this post, I'll pick up the needle!

Now, ready, set, sew!

  1. I wish she was my grandmother, too! No sew days happen. Life does that to us sometimes.
