Cotton quilting fabric and batting.
What was your inspiration?
My inspiration was Grandma Thomason. She taught me the needle turn appliqu technique and I made this quilt. Its also a great way to always remember each child, grandchild, and great grandchild's birthday.
What are you most proud of?
Actually getting it done in time:)
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Start several months in advance if family members live out of state. You can fuse the handprints in place and button hole stitch around them to save time. If you have a small family it looks really nice to place each print on a square.
