One Yellow Quilt

Last summer (2015) my daughters took a quilting class with two ladies from church.  They showed them how to cut out each square and were teaching them to hand stitch them together.

The summer ended, the class ended, and the quilts were not complete.  We tried getting one of the ladies to help and she gave limited help.  One daughter attempted to finish it on her own {with the help of this mom who knows NOTHING about quilting}.  After many frustrating hours she decided to ask Grammie for help {she had been trying to finish on her own as a gift for Grammie}.

Well, school days got us busy and the months passed on into this summer.  Ms. S asked Grammie to help her finish her quilt with Ms. A was at camp.  She was determined to finish it with in two weeks so she could take it to her camp.  After many hours and even a very late night where she declared to Grammie “I don’t think God is calling me to be a quilter!!” {oh the laughter}, it was finished.

Ms. S choose all the fabric, cut all the squares, and did all the sewing – by machine this time.  It will be a treasure for years to come, but she would rather stick with sewing dresses than quilts.

Tomorrow, I’ll show you Ms. A’s quilt.

  1. So cute! Sad, that there experiences were so frustrating. I wish they has learned rotary cutting, and machine quilting from the start. They would have both loved it!
