Quite some time ago our eldest princess decided she wanted to make a quilt (see here). So after handing her a pile of 5 inch squares to arrange she came up with this.
We pieced it together, her sitting on my lap to take out the pins and me helping her to guide the fabric through the machine.
It then took me quite sometime to get into gear and quilt it! You see I wanted to hand quilt it to make it extra special for her. But there just never seemed the time so while hubby was on Christmas holidays I set myself the goal to do it. Well... on his last day off I picked it up and not too much later it was done! Yippee Yay. I used Perle 5 Cotton to quilt it with to add an extra design element to it. My mum machine bound it so its kinda really special being made by three generations ;p
Side note: Is anyone interested in a tutorial to make it? It is the perfect beginner quilt. I taught my sister in law to make it when she was down over the Christmas break and she did the top in a day and even machine quilted it herself while she was over (she had never made a quilt before)! If I get enough interest I will write a tutorial up for you.
