Memories for Grandma

This quilt was made with baby clothes for a Grandma going through chemo treatments.  The two dresses were worn by her two daughters, and the other three outfits were worn by all 8 of her grandchildren.  The ruffles on the dresses were left loose, as were the feet and collars of the other outfits.  All of their names are embroidered in the middle - the yellow are the two daughters, and the white names are the grandkids.  The sashings are parts of a quilt/blanket made by grandma.  So she can have her entire family wrapped around her as she goes through this tough time.  The backing is a blue fleece, and I did a stitch-in-the-ditch to hold the layers together.

Block of the Month

These are my two blocks for my guild's Dec Block of the Month.  It's the CARD TRICKS pattern, and are all to be red/white/blue.  The idea is that whoever wins the blocks will make a Quilt of Valor quilt to be donated to that fabulous program.  Hopefully that winner will be me!!
