My Daughter…the QUILTER!!!

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!!P1230189   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!! 

P1230190You know what they say…Never say NEVER…P1230188 

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

  1. I wish I could get my daughter to sew with me. I love how she did it in raw edge, really nice piece, nicely laid out, she is definitely a quilt artist.

  3. How very lovely and you ARE so lucky Paulette. My daughter is not into sewing at all either, but I talked her into coming today to make floor rugs out of decoupage fabric on canvas. We'll see how it goes...

  4. My daughters aren't interested in quilting. But do have a step daughter who has made one quilt with instructions from me during her visits. Your gift was beautiful. Sigh---I love FG fabrics. Lucky you.

  5. I'm an avid knitter/crocheter and my daughter showed absolutely no interest in either while growing up. When she was about 27 she presented me with a beautiful scarf she knitted and has never looked back! I still haven't been sble to entice her into quilting, but who knows? Maybe someday!
    Blessings,

  18. Awesome! SEW happy for you. My daughter turned to Cross-stitch because she said I sewed too good and she couldn't be as good as me. I couldn't get either of my girls to sew at home, but they both have good sewing machines NOW, thanks to their Mom's good advise.
