Baby Memory Quilt

This has been a full weekend.

I started with a lovely meeting with my friendship group. We are starting a quilt that we'd like to enter in a local quilt show as a group quilt.

Then I delivered the quilt made with baby clothes. I only posted a little picture on Monday, but here is the finished quilt. I used as many of the clothes as I could. Only one or two items escaped the quilt. The mommy is very happy with the results. I am too. I tried many different designs. Because I really like on point quilts I wanted to try one, but too many of the little designs could not be put on  point. Back to the drawing board, or rather back to EQ6. This is the design I finally used. Not as original as I would have liked (this is the perfectionist in me speaking), but I think it turned out nicely.


 Twinkle Toes had a dance recital yesterday. She was a gingersnap.  There is something wonderfully sweet about a group of 3 and 4 year-olds dancing on stage.

I'm going to Road to California today to take classes with Marilyn Badger. I'm very excited about hands on longarm classes.

  1. The quilt will be a wonderful keepsake for the baby's mother, and for the baby him/herself when he/she grows up. TwinkleToes looks lovely.
    Have a wonderful time at your class today.
