Do you have fabric you just can't cut?


I bought a yard of this fabric and I just could not cut into it. I decided to make what I call a "panel quilt". 


I cut some purple cloud fabric for the borders.


I stitched on the borders with the clouds facing in on the top and the sides.


I love this fabric - "My Heart always come home to you"

 It reminds me of how important my family is to me. We are all going to be together soon and in my home.


I quilted it with two color Ribbon Quilting. I selected zinnia and a soft blue for the thread colors.






I quilted the words:  "A Quilt for Grandmama's Grand baby 2013".  This will be a quilt I will keep at my house for my Grand baby.  

It will be a quilt for Grandmama and baby to cuddle up in! Yes, I will let others cuddle with him too!  For sure Grandpapa!


I selected a super soft blue fabric for the backing of the quilt.




Oh my! I can not wait to cuddle up!


I used an 80/20 (Cotton/Poly) Batting.


I attached the binding with an all machine embroidery stitching.  A soft purple was the perfect choice for the thread on the binding.


Flipped the back to the front so you can see both sides.




I know babies don't use quilts or blankets in the crib any more, but I just had to see what it looked like in the crib!


I am ready to have my Grandbaby come to visit. I only have a couple more days to wait!

Last week, I got out the nursery rhyme books.


 I started reading them to the baby on Skype. 


They are the ones that my Mom read to me when I was a baby and that I read to my children. 

I can't wait to read them to my Grand baby all cuddled up in my Grandmama's Quilt.




I even cleaned up some stuffed toys. We are going to have so much fun.


Plus, I am making some little stuffed toys using my quilting fabric. I will share them with you soon.

Enjoy!
