Granddaughter Quilt -

This is the quilt I made for our oldest granddaughter. She picked out most of the fabrics. It's hand embroidered, hand appliqued, machine pieced, hand quilted. She was able to follow it's making (since she moved to Georgia with her family) on her own blog -
So each of our four grandchildren have one hand quilted, and in most cases, hand pieced and/or appliqued and/or embroidered quilt from me.

Tree skirt, grandmother's flower garden

The grandmother's flower garden pictured here was made for my first grandson Joshua. Hand pieced, using 30s reproduction fabrics, and hand quilted. I'd love to make another one, and keep playing with designs.

The tree skirt is one of two - this one was made in traditional reds and greens for my son Erik and his family. Machine pieced and machine quilted, the quilting includes the names of the family (including Ethan), and of course the family dog, Scooter!)
