Embroidered Baby Quilt

Embroidered Baby Quilt (2)I pulled this quilt out the other day and thought I would share on this blog. This is an embroidered baby quilt that I completed when my grandmother was still alive. As you can see, it is 6 different animals embroidered.

She is the one that introduced me to quilting. My grandmother did everything by hand from stitching the pattern on the top – connecting the blocks – apply the binding – and finally the quilting. This quilt I completely did by hand and used a large wooden hoop to do the quilting. I don’t have any grandchildren but think I will hold on to it just to remember what a gift my grandmother gave to me when she taught me how to quilt.

 

I also am finishing an applique quilt that I started cutting out for my grandmother many years ago.  I finally have finished the top last year and I am quilting it by using the sewing machine.  I will share it when it is completed.
