“Thisis the quilt I made for my first grandchild. I was inspired when I saw the darling pastel ginghams at the fabric store. It is hand pieced and hand quilted. I incorporated her first initial “A” into the quilting design in the large pink triangles.

“Thisis a baby quilt I made for my first granddaughter, Parker. My daughter(Parker’s mom) designed and drew out the pattern and then I hand appliqued the top. This is one of my favorite quilts!“… Jackie Rodgers

Ijust finished this baby quilt for a nephew’s yet-to-be-born little girl. The pattern is called X’s and O’s, and the fabric is “Meadow Friends” by Moda. It was a very simple pattern, so I wanted to get a little creative with the quilting. I must give credit to Judi Madsen of Green Fairy Quilts for the quilting ideas. I love how it turned out-“… Sharon Mason

We’d like to end this evening with two special quilts…

“Justsent this quilt off to a little guy whose daddy was over in Afghanistanin the military with my husband. He was born last year while his daddy was serving his country! It has been fun making personalized quilts for the ladies in my husband’s unit that had babies while their husbands were putting their lives in danger. The design was taken from the wall decorations in the baby’s room. ” …Debra Ressler
