She's 5 and a Special Surprise!!

Yes, Kami was born on Pi Day!!!  Lucky girl :)  And today she turned 5.  Wow, she is growing up so fast.  She loves her preschool and is so looking forward to Kindergarten.  She is a big helper for mommy when the older kids go to school and loves to play with her younger sister.  She got to open one special present this morning from her older sister.


 Jessi's Baby and Me quilts!!!  Aren't they just adorable!!  Jessica has been working on this project for over a year.  She started with me, and then Grandma Barbara jumped in to help as well.


Jessica did everything on these quilts from start to finish.  She picked out the fabrics with very little guidance, yes she has great color sense.  The cutting made me a little nervous as she is a lefty and kept using the rotary cutter "backwards" but we got through it with no missing appendages. She pieced all of her rows and sashings and it was fun to see how she got more confident and she moved along with it.


And yes, she even quilted each and bound them.  She quilted the larger quilt on the long arm and the smaller quilt on my home machine.  It made me laugh when she said the home machine was "way harder" than the long arm :)


Seriously, look at that concentration :)


And I just went in to the Birthday Girl's room to find her baby wrapped in it's mini blanket and Kami wrapped in hers.  Yup, I think it was a perfect Surprise Jessi ;)  Great job!!!


And Happy Birthday Kami Girl!!  We Love You!!!

Have a Happy Quilting Weekend, and have a piece of Pie for Pi day :)

  4. That is such a wonderful thing that her sister did for her and she did a beautiful job on making them. I think you have a young quilt artist in the making.
