Well it's Wednesday again and I have a super special project that I am very excited to share with you all. I interrupted my progress on my AB tube quilt to make my lovely Grandma a birthday present this week. Monday was her 78th birthday, and I spent all day Sunday working feverishly to get her special gift done in time. I made her a 35"x35" jumbo Dresden plate wall hanging quilt. I chose fabrics I thought would look in place in her home and the Dresden plate because she loves applique. This quilt was fun and easy to make, but I spent most of my time quilting it. My Grandma has recently taken up free motion quilting, around the same time I did, 9 months ago, and she has been my biggest supporter and fan in this learning journey. I took this opportunity to do my very best work for her- to show her what I could do and to inspire her to keep working at it. She has already seen the pictures of this and it is in route to her now via the USPS- I simply can't wait until she gets it in person and it takes it's rightful place on one of her walls amongst all her own lovely quilts. In a true expression of love I even hand sewed the binding - which is something I truly do not enjoy- but for her it had to be perfect. It was a good week for accomplish goals- and the quilt is something I know will be cherished- which really makes me smile.
