Finally finished, grandgirl's quilt
Finally finished! This has been a UFO since before my grandgirl was born almost 8 years ago. It is not fancy, but is intended to be used. As hard as it is to believe in this heat, winter will be here again--some day--so I decided it was time to buckle down and finish her baby quilt to replace the oversized flannel blanket I did finish before she arrived. She told me she needs something a bit longer.
I used Kaye Wood's 6-hour quilt as a guideline, with my own measurements and no serger. I learned to hand quilt on this, experimented with various marking methods as well as trying out four or five different types of thimbles and methods.
My daughter and granddaughter have been cheering me on across state lines these past few months as I worked on it again, but I just had to share the finish with the people who help inspire me with all their wonderful quilts. It is washed, dried, and packed, ready to ship out. Woo Hoo!
