Linking up with Elm Street Quilts
This month it was my goal that whatever else I did I wanted to finish quilting the quilt I was making for my four year old grand niece. I delivered it to her today and her reaction was I think what every quilter loves, a delight with her quilt, it warmed my heart no end.
Her Nan – my sister opens up the quilt for her to view.
Up close inspection of front
Feeling the back which is a lovely double minky. She always takes over her Nana’s quilt when she visits because she loves the soft backing, so hers has a soft backing too!
And what we love to do with a quilt, roll up in it and keep warm. It is winter here after all in New Zealand!
Around the edge I quilted some of Scarlett’s female genealogy. So I started with her name and then quilted all those women who went before her back seven generations to Magdalena who arrived in Nelson from Germany in 1842 on the Skiold.
And the seventh generation back
It’s nice to finish this, my shoulders, wrists and elbow are feeling it, but so worth it!
