another contest, another quilt
FLOWERS FOR MAKENNA
Quilting bloggers is having another weekly theme contest "FLOWERS" and this is the quilt I entered. I made it in anticipation of my first grandchild. Sure glad she was a girl...............lol!! I finished hemming it while daughter was in labor. (in all honesty I was also working on one for a boy with appliqued airplanes out of most of the same fabrics as this one ( less the pink and purple.) Caught a lucky breaking getting a granddaughter first( you know it didn't even dawn on me till she was about 8 months along that it could be a boy somehow I just knew but why tempt fate,,,,,,,,that's when I started the airplanes. :)) It would not have been ready in time for hospital pictures. and to this day is stilll an incomplete UFO even though I have a grandson, he has his own quilt (see Pennies for Rylee) ( or at least he used to have it until his mothers ex threw it away. ggrrrrrr!!!) Below is a picture of Makenna this evening holding her baby quilt so you can see the label, the ink (micro pens) has faded to the point you can barely read it. Today age 9, she began her first day of fourth grade.
here is rylee's
called "Pennies for Rylee" You can't see much of it but it is hanging on the coolest antique wicker(?) stroller that is here in a local antique shoppe. It is soo cool, but I was tryong to feature my quilt not the stroller.
