On to Thanksgiving!!!!! I just love this look for fall, Karen Valentine does such an amazing job! Thanks Karen!
I have always wanted to have quilts in my home, but have not really been able to afford the real things, as I would love the old, soft handmade type that cost an arm and a leg! I saw on the web that there was a woman named Lori Holt, who has her own lines of fabric….I just fell in love with the colors and then I saw this quilt pattern:
Is this not the cutest quilt ever? You all know how much I love anything to do with “Grandma’s Aprons”…..I emailed Lori to ask for help getting the fabric I needed as the first run of it had sold out, and she was so kind to help me find it on Etsy and EBay, etc.…..
As you all know I do not sew, quilt, nothing! LOL But my sweet cousin Linda sews and her daughter Michele quilts, and Linda wanted to make this for me to thank me for all of the genealogy work I have done on our families. So I sent her the fabric and the pattern, they worked like crazy to get it done before I got there last month. It was a lot of weekends up at Michele’s place.
Measuring and cutting……
Linda hand embroidered the word’s “ I remember Grandma’s” in a sweet red thread.
Then Michele quilted the parts that needed it on her sewing machine…..aren’t those gloves neat? They had a rubber substance on the tips of the fingers, just for this task….
And this is the final project!!!!!!
And this is me the first time I saw it!!!!!
I was just amazed and so happy!!!!!! It will hang in my bedroom on the wall by my side of the bed, so every morning I wake to this wonderful work of love!
Thank you Linda and Michele…..this wonderful quilt means the world to me!
