Today is my paternal grandmother’s birthday, and my birthday is a bit later this week (on Thursday).
Happy Birthday, Grandma!
My grandmother offered to hand quilt a twin-size quilt for me to take to college. The only catch was that I had to make the quilt top. She’s the reason I started quilting, and the first quilt that I made means so much to me, especially because I think it was the final quilt she hand quilted before she passed away.
Note the extra wide binding: I used a 3” single fold binding.
I’ll be turning 40 this week. I haven’t put a lot of thought into the number. In general, I won’t be sad to be saying goodbye to the turbulent decade that was my 30s.
Cheers to another trip around the sun: to love and laughter and joy and quiet time to contemplate. To quilts made and slept under and dreamed about. To celebrate our birthday week, all patterns in my Quilting Jetgirl shop will be on sale for 25% off through Friday, September 6th, 2019, using the coupon code birthdayweek2019.
