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.
