My daughter…THE QUILTER…ohhhh that has such a sweet ring to it! Yup, I can officially say that my daughter is a QUILTER (insert heavenly music here) because LOOK at what I received in yesterday’s mail!!! A quilted runner…a dang cute quilted runner…made by her own little hands!!
How lucky am I…to not only have a quilting daughter… but to have a quilting daughter who makes such lovely things for her mama! Look, it’s raw edge appliqué in French General fabric…LOVE IT!! This is her second project but her first official FINISHED project! The first project is now a UFO…yup…already taking after her mama!!
Erin’s inspiration for this runner came from reading Pine Needles Blog! OMGosh…it just dawned on me…that makes her a Blog Lurker! She really is a chip off the ol’block, isn’t she!!
This from the girl who had no interest in needle and thread or in the sewing machine while growing up!! None…no way…no how!!
I say, why fight it…it’s in her genes!! heehhee
I love it Erin! It exceeded my wildest expectations!! (Mind you I was still thinking styrofoam Christmas ornaments and clay sunflower teapots…both of which I cherish dearly!!) BUT your calling is definitely leaning towards quilting…you are a natural!! Keep ‘em coming!!:o)))
Geeze that’s TWO quilty gifts in two days…you’d think it was my birthday or something!
Have a Super Saturday and Happy Quilting!~P
