For this challenge I finally finished a quit I started when my daughter was 11 years old and she is now 32. The entire front is made of her clothes from when she was a baby and my grandmothers clothes. My grandmother passed away in 1982 and I kept all her dusters. When my daughter was here a few weeks back she ask if I would finish it so she could hang it in her foyer.

This quilt is truly handmade. No rotary cutter or sewing machine. Every cut and stitch by hand. I love how it turned out and so happy to finally have it completed. It took me 2 hours to finish it. Just think it has been packed away that close to being finished for 21 years.

I'm giving it to her for Christmas. I have not even told her I finished it. She will be so happy to finally have it to display.

  8. Bee-utiful quilt. Have always been envious of quilters. I crochet and always admire handmade items like quilts when I go to the TX State Fair & other such events. Noticed that you indicated that the challenge is now mthly so you need to adjust the linky deadline which is showing 1 wk deadline.

    1. Thanks Melissa. Funny, see I never learned to crochet. Well I can do blankets but no fancy stitching. I always wanted to learn to make clothes. Thank you so much for pointing out the close of the link up being in a week. So used to having them close in 7 days I just did it without thinking. I fixed it and went ahead and fixed the SVG Saturday one as well. You are so observant.

      Big Hugs
