Quilt for Megan and Chris

Mom used to make tied quilts for the grandkids for a wedding present.
My Sisters have carried on the tradition. Donna helped me put this on on the frames when she was here a few weeks ago. We tied a few rows and I finished it this week. Sally made the last one so it was my turn.
Peg's Daughter Meagan was getting married so she didn't have to worry about this one.
I am counting this as my 6th quilt in 2009. I am now ready to start some new projects.
I still have 3 more quilts to complete this year, so I better get busy.

Good Job Maddie

"This is not your Granny's Quillow"

For Maddie I kicked it up a notch and put satin on the back. It feels fabulous! I also quilted it with straight lines on the machine.

Good Job Tyler!

This quillow looks exactly like the one Mom made for her grandchildren when they graduated from High School.

Mom had 63 grandchildren and now that she is gone her daughters have tried to keep the tradition and make a quillow for the graduate.

We only have 8 more to go.
