This is what my bro and I gave our grandmother for Christmas this year.
Woodworking runs in the family so my brother hand-crafted the frame. We wished my sister could have contributed but she was too busy having a baby, several states away!
I used the four hour trip north to attempt hand quilting for the first time. I used pearle cotton and stitched along the seams. I found this method made it easier for me to quickly quilt in a straight line, but I did have a hard time controlling the stitch length due to the truck's bumpy ride. We were both super happy with it and so was Gram :D
Here's that baby I mentioned earlier. She came out all yellow and had to spend time under a uv light, hence the blue tint and stylish eyewear. I also heavily edited the photo in order to throw off you pyscho cyber stalkers. In reality babies all look alike to me, but since she isn't my kid I figured I ought to disguise her identity, lol. Plus it's way super fun to play with photos in Instagram and MobileMonet, my two fav free apps!
Anyways, the dog desperately needs a bath after playing on the farm all weekend. Over and out!
