proud.

I'm feeling some maternal pride today.
Now don't get me wrong.
Jenn's not my daughter...
but this is her first quilt!!
*****Thundering APPLAUSE******
AND
I saw this one coming together.
A quilt always begins with those trips to the shop.
Choosing the fabric....
Deciding what pattern to use....
Cutting the fabric.....
Making the blocks....
I got to sit on the sidelines and watch it all happening!
Like I said.
I'm a proud "quilt mother" today!
Jenn said she will be adding a white border,
so this quilt isn't quite finished.
But we can all see that she's SOooo close!
right?

And here's the beginnings of her
SECOND quilt!!
Two little girls.
You've got to have two little quilts!
Are you a "quilt mother" to anyone?
Let me tell you.
It's a great feeling!
I'm adding this to Amy's sew and tell!

  4. You have been so ( sew) busy!
    Congrats on your art win...love the crow and so darn clever with the labels.....you should do a little tutorial on it!
    Yes, I have been tempted to start that new block that Bonnie is talking about as a leader and ender.....but another new project??
    My head may explode if I don't finish some of these soon!
    thanks for stopping by my blog....we seem to travel in a lot of the same groups :0)

    Happy sewing

  7. I have a quilt mom, she gave me my first scraps. And I am a quilt mom to my twin sis. I had to babysit her through every seam of her first!
