The backing for these quilts came from lefted over fabrics and other fabric in my stash that the girls liked.
This is Lydia's quilt. This all took us about 1 1/2 months to start and finish the quilts. The girls helped me cut the fabric with my accuquilt, helped pick out more fabric when the quilt sizes grew, pieced, pressed and cut their blocks. Then when the time came they picked out their quilting pattern and help me quilt them on the long-arm machine.
The next two pictures are Amelia's double bed size quilt. She even helped mom sew on the sewing machine one day.
Just so Amelia would not be left out for a time, I made a quilt for her daybed, which my daughter did not know about until I gave them to her.
All of the quilts have labels on them, which was so much fun to make. I will have to do more like this. I used my EQ7 and designed them and then printed them on fabric sheets and sewed them onto the quilts. Very FAST! Mistake was made in the label and now needs to be corrected, the girls did sew 16 blocks each, not 12.
Just love to wash the quilts after they are made. I love the look you get when you do not prewash the fabrics. Thank heavens my family room is big enough to lay out 4 double size quilts all at once.
All wrapped up and ready to give to the girls. Each with their name showing on the top and Amelia's second quilt is inside the center of her big one.
It was later in the day by the time we got over to their house and Amelia had already gone to bed, but Cassandra and Lydia were as happy as Christmas Morning! Each of them opened and started to play with their quilts.
I understand that there is some kind of a quilt club going on over at their house.....I will have to check it out and get back with you later.
What fun we had. Cassandra is 8 and picked up on quilting like she had been doing it for years and Lydia age 6, just loved the whole process of the quilting. Both are looking forward to the next quilting lesson with grandma. Now just what are we going to do?
