My Daughter's Quilt

What are you most proud of? Saving the important parts of grandma's handwork. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Hand-wash the old linens first then stablize all embroidery knots with fray-check so it doesn't come apart.

You Can Make This

shanmodtraditio made My Daughter's Quilt with:

  • Leftover fabrics from my stash and some additional fabrics my little daughter chose at the store. The hand-embroidered butterflies were from a tattered tablecloth that I couldn't let grandpa throw out (eventhough it had holes and stains) so I salvaged the embroidery work
  • cleaned it
  • stabilized it and sewed it into quilt blocks.

So sweet and feminine! It looks and sounds like you have a very precious girly-girl. Love the salvaging of Grandma's tablecloth. Such a touching remembrance for your daughter.
shanmodtraditio answered:
Thank you. After 3 boys, it is fun to have a girly-girl Princess! I thought saving the tablecloth was nice too--especially since grandma passed before meeting my sweetie. They both loved pink and I know grandma would treasure our Princess.
