My Granddaughters Quilts

I made the same quilt for both of them. The first one is for Abbie and is made in the colours of her bedroom. The background is a light cream and the white wings show quite clearly but not in the photo. Even with the clothes hoist on the highest, the quilt was still longer. I thought I would get a clearer picture outside.




This one is for Grace. I picked the colours mainly because my DIL likes [loves] red and don't we dress our children, in colours we like. The pattern came with 3 layouts so they are slightly different.


I did the all applique and sewing on the machine, so fast and easy to make and rather enjoyable.

Wonderful quilts and I like the idea of machine applique for kids, think it would hold up better.

What fun! The girls will love them for years. Great how they are similar as they get older they'll want to use them together ;-)
You did a wonderful job.
