Proud mum

Finally the first of big quilts is finished, washed and packed. Generally - in time.
And the best part - the quilting on the front and the back is the same quality, so it can be used both ways without me blushing too hard. Okay, I'm still at the very beginning of this quilting journey, but after I learned to use abundance of starch, especially for the back, my life is getting easier. LOL

But that's  not my major whoop - whoop this week. The thing which really makes me jump around is...

My youngest, who is 11, finished her first quilt!!!!

It's far from perfect (trust me, even worse than mine!) but it's finished! It has been her first and only hers - she picked the fabrics by herself, decided what pattern she wants, and made it.
She tried different quilting patterns on it, free motion included, and I must say that I'm rather impressed that the needle hit her fingers only twice.
Her quilt is for her dog, so size was picked to fit him, and colours also in hope that it will not getting dirty too fast.

  1. Wow, Ann, both are just beautiful! I love to see first quilts - it's so exciting to think of all the quilts she has ahead of her! Whoop whoop for both of you!
