For Tabitha from Grandma

Posted on

018

A wonderful surprise yesterday-my mother made a quilt for Tabitha! I knew she was working on one, but had kind of forgotten about it and I had no idea what fabrics or pattern or anything.  It’s absolutely beautiful and just perfect for her-from the kitty cat fabric to the appliques.  I’m quite impressed with the appliques and embroidery and it’s an awfully neat way to jazz up the backing. I also love the choice of bright complementary fabrics.

Thank you Mom!

  3. how nice! I love the idea of having a quilt made by grandma. I remember the one you had on the Vineyard that your mom made for you – didn’t it have fabric from your christening gown in it? My double Irish Chain (Queen size, no less) has been untouched for months! 😦
