Of course I was taken to the nursery...and YES, the baby was beautiful just like his mama...chubby and rosy pink, with the softest hair on the top of the sweetest round head! And big...24lbs...with the chubbiest legs that are always moving! Yes, he is crawling like crazy...let me just say...he is just PERFECT and snuggle we did...
BUT enough about baby...(OK...one more quick snuggle)....this is a QUILTING blog ...Let me show you what was hanging in the baby's nursery! This gorgeous hexagon quilt...made years ago by grandma! My iPhone pictures do not do it justice! This quilt is big...it was folded and hanging over a rod...and it was magnificent! Grandma would be so proud!
Loved the nice off white hexie border around each flower...made it look crisp and clean, a perfect quilt for a baby's room...or for that matter, ANY room!
With inspiration like that on the wall is it any wonder that Jess and her mom have decided to start Quilting! Yup, Jess' mom bought a brand new Janome Horizon and away they went! (It's in their blood...thanks to Grandma! I say why fight it! :o)
This is what Jess just finished...the softest, sweetest Chenille quilt for the the baby!
And Jess's mom is working on the binding to this gorgeous I SPY quilt!
They are helping each other along the road to quilting...like Mother like Daughter, like Grandma!
Jess has the blocks cut out for FOUR more quilts which she is hoping to gift at Christmas! Grandma would be very proud indeed!
So this is a good lesson for us all! Who knows who we are influencing with our quilting...maybe future generations...grand children or even great-grand children who will be inspired to pick up needle and thread long after we are gone! Kind of warms the soul, doesn't it!
Have a FUN Friday and Happy Quilting!~P
