Kids Quilting

I can't share this week's quilting project with you, because I don't want to spoil the surprise for the recipient.  Maybe later after I've passed it on.

So for today's post, here are pics of some fun I had with my granddaughters this weekend.  The 6-year old has been arranging fabrics on my design boards for a couple of years now, and has just recently started to sew them together on my Bernina now!  Yay!!!

And now her 2 year old sister is joining in the fun... Aren't they doing a great job?



And sometimes you just have to sit back and admire your work...  :)

Another Finish with George

My daughter-in-law pieced this quilt and asked me to quilt it for her.  I just finished it up a few days ago and it's in the mail on it's way back to her.  I'm still learning more with each quilt and love the process of quilting on George!  I  used Quilters Dream Orient batting in this one (her request) and love how soft and silky the quilt feels when it's finished.  It's a little fuzzy while I'm working on it, but that cleans up with a lint roller, so it's not really a problem.  It feels so luxurious!  The polka dot backing fabric obscures the quilting, but the texture feels amazing.
