Granddaughter's Quilt

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I cut some flowers out of one of the prints and appliqued them onto the quilt; also did some quilting in the border using a stencil. Found both a little difficult due to maneuvering the quilt around my regular home sewing machine. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Enjoy!

What you will need

  • Cotton fabrics
  • cotton batting
  • threads

Q&A with GmaMK

Davesmom asked:
What a lovely quilt for your granddaughter. The appliqued flower does add to the bigger squares. Your granddaughter is a luck girl. Lovely quilt!
GmaMK answered:
Thank you so much for your kind words!
Arlene C asked:
Your granddaughter will love that quilt because you made it especially for her! Quilting is the most difficult part for me because of having to move the bulk of fabric around in my sewing machine. I haven't tried to applique anything that small so I imagine it is difficult. You did a great job.
GmaMK answered:
Thank you Arlene! Yes, quilting is the hardest part for me too ... but can't afford to send too many out either
Pamillia asked:
You created a pretty little quilt & your extra touches are wonderful. You might think about getting you a Supreme Slider to go on your machine & some quilting gloves. These items have helped me a lot on my conventional machine. Here is amazons page to look at them... http://www.amazon.com/s/?ie=UTF8&keywords=supreme+slider+quilting&tag=googhydr-20&index=aps&hvadid=7819274265&hvpos=1t1&hvexid=&hvnetw=s&hvrand=1892319084773140262&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=b&ref=pd_sl_9ce9i80clz_b Or just type in Supreme Slider like I did & get a multitude of places to find them. Sweet quilt & well done. Thank you for sharing. :-)

Pamillia, thank you so much for your kind words! And for the advice ... I have the quilting gloves which have helped, but I'm going to look for the supreme slider! I really appreciate your thoughts on this!
