You may have seen my first quilt ever last week on Throwback Thursday. I think this is technically the second quilt I pieced, but the first one I finished. It was a gift for my grandmother, not long before she passed away. I've had it back now for a couple years. And I love it, not only because it shows my beginnings of quilting, but also because I think of my grandmother whenever I look at it.
Like my first quilt, this one comes from the book Quilting for Dummies. Again, I used my walking foot to do some straight line quilting, around the petals and leaves. This little lap quilt measures 36" by 49".
I even made an actual label for the back. It reads:
Made With Love
By Sarah Marie
My Second Quilt
Thanks for visiting.
And so: will you be naming it?
I think My Second Quilt is it's name. ;-) I'm really trying to get better at this. I have two good ones coming up. Okay, I didn't actually name either of them. But I collaborated to choose a name for one of them. :-)
I suggest translation. Everything is fancier in a romance language:
fleur de grand-mère
deux por grand-mère
That's funny, cause I considered a french name (though I decided on another) for one of my WIP quilts. :-)
I vote for Fleurs de Grand-mere!
Sarah, I can just imagine the delight she had from this quilt made by you. What a sweet quilt and memory to match. You are really a quilter by nature I think. Wonderful share today.
It is a pretty quilt Sarah that was made with a lot of love for your grandmother. I can see why it brings you smiles and great joy to look at it. :-)
Thank you, Bo. It really feeds the uber-nostalgic part of me. :-)
