A Sweet Baby Girl Quilt

This Kinder Layer Cake of fabric by Windham Fabrics turned out to make the perfect quilt for our Kinder teacher who just had her first baby. I figured new mom received plenty of "baby things" so it was fun to make a bright and happy quilt her new daughter could use as toddler and beyond.
It measures 46"x53", so easy enough for her to drag around as she grows into it.
 
I used a bright flannel backing and love the checked green binding.
 I had my daughter make me this quilt label and easily added it to the quilt with a zig-zag stitch.
  
And of course, my ABC-123 pantograph put the finishing touches on it don't ya think!

This was a fun one to make.
With smiles, Val:)

"May the Force Be With You"

Like most four years old's right now, our youngest grand guy just loves Baby Yoda.

For his fourth birthday (last month) he got Baby Yoda Jammies:

He got a "big boy" twin bed so of course, we bought him Baby Yoda sheets:
 

And....finally...Meme got his birthday quilt DONE!!! 
(Yes, a month later!!!)

I love the flannel green & black check backing and "bubbles" pantograph I used:

It's just the right size for that NEW twin size bed too!!!

And here he is opening up his "Happy Mail":

SWEET DREAMS Little One!!!

With Smiles! Val:)

Birthday Quilts Ready to Gift!


Not one...

...but two birthday quilts.
 These were quick and easy strip quilts that happily filled our grand guys request of  a 
birthday quilt in fabric of his favorite football team. I used a soft flannel backing and 
made them to be twin and crib size to fit the beds at their dad's house.


Hard to believe these two are going to be four and eight!


These are their traditional quilt labels and I finished the quilts with a fun football pantograph.






More quilty hugs...
...for the two that call me Meme.
With Smiles.
