This past weekend we had lots of family here visiting, including my adorable baby niece, Grace Anne! It's such a treat when they'll come to visit, we all miss having a baby around so much, and she is just the sweetest, most smiley-est baby!
Early Sunday afternoon while we were playing Haila asked if she could make a new quilted pillow, this time just for Grace, so we dove right in! We picked out a few fat quarters from my stash of Lotta Jansdotter fabrics, specifically in prints to match up with the Glimma Quilt I gave to Grace at Christmas time.
We spray basted the fabric to a 15" square piece of batting, Haila chose a matching yellow Aurifil, and handled the quilting like a pro! I love the wonky-ness of her stitches so much! Part of me hopes that doesn't change as she gets more and more comfortable, but I know it's bound to. This time I hovered a little less compared to our last pillow making session, and by her last few stitches I had moved the speed up almost all the way!
I helped out with the trimming, backing, and finishing, and then she tied it up with a little twine bow before handing it over to Grace!
Another sewing finish for my girl and Yes, we think Grace loves it!!
