A quilt a year.....
When my granddaughter Lilybug was born 4 years ago , I was still taking quilting lessons.
I vowed to make her a quilt a year until she turned 18 and so far I have kept that promise.
The 1st one was a fusible applique heart quilt . Each heart on the corners say something like her name, her birthday, her initial and her parents name.
The 2ND quilt was an alphabet quilt.
The 3rd quilt was a strawberry shortcake quilt and the last one I made her was a pattern I purchased from Nannette- the doll dresses.
Lily called me 2 times that week just to tell me how much she loved that quilt and how she was taking it to nap time at pre-school.
The 5th quilt I am still deciding on. Her birthday is in October and I told my friend Cindy that I wanted to make Lily a Halloween quilt. Cindy is a great quilter and has been helping me with this one.
My friend Toni sent me a complete super powered Halloween quilt kit for my daughter and because there is so much Halloween fabric in it, I am thinking of using some for Lily's 5Th quilt.
I cannot ask for better friends and blogger friends who are always an email away ready to help me in these endeavors.
