Ginny B's First Quilt!

See what a little time and sewing can accomplish? Ginny came over today for just that. She has been working on completing a quilt for each of her 7 grandkids for Christmas. I'm trying to help with advice, encouragement, and also, doing the quilting part.

This came off the frame today. It truly is her first quilt, and it all started with a charm pack! Since she's a retired schoolteacher, the theme was perfect. She's keeping this one.

Isn't she proud!?! I am, too, it's very rewarding to share the love of creating in fabric!

Our other projects today were:
  1. hemming her "Mother of the Bride" dress, her daughter is getting married on Saturday. (Maybe I'll have a photo to post later.)
  2. sewing her next squares together for grandson #1, accomplishing the first time she learned to chain squares together one after another. Yippee! Another lesson accomplished!
  3. beginning on my next quilt top, this one with Moda's "Tweet, Tweet" cuties, and the flowers cut on the borrowed Accuquilt GO! this past week. Fun! more to come....
Happy Quilting,

P.S. Did anybody see my orange stack here? I was tickled, and I'm still grinning! Thanks, Jodi!


  1. What a pretty quilt! She did great for her first time! The quilting looks nice too! And I did see your orange stack! How exciting for you! :0)

  2. What a terrific job!!! You are a good teacher!

  3. Oh, that's fantastic......what a good friend you are. She's going to LOVE her retirement ! Hope she can AFFORD IT !

    I've been tempted by the TweetTweet collection and have hung back. I'm afraid I'll wait too late and regret not moving earlier. Can't wait to see what you make with yours !

  4. That is an amazing 'first' quilt. Tell her to keep up the great work!

  5. Great job! How fun to share your love of sewing with a friend.

  6. What a darling quilt!! :o)
    And boy oh boy did I see that orange stack! Right away I knew I need to start a collection of my own. :o)
    Have a great weekend.
