Being a Grandma is the best thing about getting older. I'm "Marmee" to my two darling granddaughters. I am having so much fun sewing "girly" stuff, as I raised only boys!
GD2 turned one year old this week. To celebrate, I made (finished) an "I Spy" quilt that I had started when my youngest niece was 2. She is in Middle School now!
Red and yellow and pink and green, purple and orange and blue . . . I can sing a rainbow.
And bound in a black and white stripe -- thanks Ginny of Ruth's Stitchery for finding just the right stripe for me!
If you click on the photo to enlarge it, you can see some of my favorite blocks: in the upper right-hand corner is a US Navy aircraft carrier (Uncle Jacob's ship). Two blocks to the left of that is a fish on a yellow motorcycle (Uncle Justin rides a yellow motorcycle). In the bottom row is a bear using a computer (Grandpa is a computer expert).
I wish I had thought to add some photos of all of GD2's grandparents and great-grandparents. They all live a distance apart, and that would help her learn who everyone is, since she sees them so seldom. Also, how could I not add a "sewing machine" block to represent Marmee?
One more photo so you can see Mr. Blue Suede Shoe's nice ankles:
Linking up to "Richard and Tanya's "Link a Finish Friday" and
I have lots of novelty fabrics left over from my "I Spy,"
would you like them? Leave one (please!) comment on this post before
