Klaire's birthday quilt

New postby bridesmom on Thu Oct 09, 2008 9:23 am

This is for my GD that will be 2 in Dec. The top has been done since spring,it's been sandwiched and waiting and I finally sat down yesterday and quilted it. I sewed on the binding by machine. It's the first time I have done the hearts around the border and it worked not bad but I did get some wrinkles in the backing. Next time I will secure the border better.

She's going to love it if my little girl who's almost 2 is any indication. She has to have her princess pillow at night when she goes to bed. Your granddaughter is one lucky little girl.
