Dresden Quilt for a Neighbor

This quilt top has been done for a few years.  Tanya basted it about a year ago.

She gave up on me on quilting it and decided to do it herself.

It is only the second quilt she has quilted.

If that isn't enough of a shock, she bound it to.  She has been practicing on binding pot holders.

She even personalized it with the new babies name and birth year.

Hopefully the new mom enjoys it.

Julia Quilts, Well makes a hotpad and has a B-Day!

 Julia has been pestering me to let her make some hot pads for her friends mom.  I finally relented this last week and let her do it.
 Julia is growing up.  Its funny to think 8 years ago she is what caused me to start quilting.  I know in the last 4 years I have almost vanished but my little princess is making me make a return.
Julia did not do this all alone.  I cut out the squares for her and sewed a few of them together and helped thread the machine.  But most of the actually sewing she did.
 I even let her Iron.  I almost got away with it (Tanya did not know that I let her play with the hot iron) but well the burn on her had gave us away so I got caught.
 All in all she did a pretty good job and did not burn the house down and only burnt a small mark into her wrist.  It will heal but the memories of her doing this on her own will last forever.
 Julia picked all the materials out for these.  We are making another few quilts and these were left over squares that she stole for this project.
 She even basted the hot pad on her own and pinned it.
 She also quilted the hot pad.  Don't look too close at the lines as they are not all that strait but all in all it looks good.
 I am proud of her she did a fantastic job.
Here is the hot pads after I did the binding on them.  She tried to do it but was not having great luck so I finished that part for her.

Today is Julia's B-Day she turned 8.  She was really sad that she was not able to have her friends over for a party or go out to dinner like we normally do for Birthdays.  We did get her some lunch that we picked up from Cafe Rio that was really good.

She got a pair of skates and lots of other presents but still was some what bummed out as the world tried to cancel her B-day.  But lucky for her we did it any way.
 I have a 8 month old little grand daughter that we get to baby sit.  And while we were at the store a month ago I had to buy her this cute pink little chair.  She is finally to the point she can sit up in it.
This is my baby, Baby sitting her niece.  They make a good team when we can get them both down for a nap at the same time. With school out because of the virus, she has lots of time to spoil her.
Our little grand baby wants to grow up.  Here she is trying to get into a box she stood up all on her own.  She is just so cute.
