From the very start, Grandma and Kamree decided to do a large HST quilt. Kamree came up to my house and we played with HST layouts on EQ7. In the end, the Chevron won out. Then it was back to Grandma's to raid her stash of pinks and blues ;)
I got to teach Kamree how to sew HST's while Grandma was helping some of the other girls with their bags. She took to it like a pro :) And when she finished them all up Grandma showed her how to sew the blocks into a quilt top. Didn't she do a marvelous job lining up all her seams!!
Once the quilt top was all done Grandma helped Kamree with a pieced back using some of her favorite prints from Grandma's stash that got vetoed for the front. (Yes, the flamingo's and puppy dog prints are cute, but this is going on her bed and mom wanted a calmer look so they got sent to the back :)
Then it was time to load the top and back on the long arm. Once again, Kamree took to it like a pro!!! She did all of the quilting herself with Grandma watching over. Kamree quilted all over loops in the pink chevrons.
And in the blue chevrons she did this cute wiggle design. I love this and she did such a great job with her spacing!
At the bottom of the quilt, Grandma helped Karmee put her name into her quilt as well. So fun!!
And last but not least, time for binding. Kamree machine stitched her binding on and did a great job. That is a lot of quilt to manage and she really did keep her stitches straight and right on the edge. I mean look at that perfect corner ;)
And best of all Kamree loves her quilt and (most of the time) loved making it :) Great job Kamree!! Your quilt is absolutely beautiful. You worked so very hard on it and now you get to enjoy snuggling under it each night. Yippee!!!
So ya, I am a super proud Auntie!!! As I should be right?? Kamree worked so hard and did a fantastic job!! You would never guess this was her first. This is what we gave her for her Birthday last month and I am so excited to see what she does with it :)
I can't tell you how happy it makes me to see the joy of quilting being passed down a generation. It just makes me grin from ear to ear. I have already been imagining Round Robin quilts with Grandma and the Nieces and Aunts in a few years. Oh, how fun that would be. Something to look forward to for sure ;)
Have a Happy Quilting Day!!
