Granddaughters Quilting

Here are my granddaughters quilting their first project. I've been wanting to help them get started for a couple of years. Since they live in Montana and I in Oregon, I don't have the opportunity to do this. So I packed up my Gem, supplies, fabric and took them with me on my vacation.

The top picture is my oldest granddaughter on her mom's Janome.

The second picture is my youngest granddaughter sewing on my Gem.

Here are their finished projects:

While I was at it they persuaded me to make their bedroom curtains. Now all they nee are floor rugs. Maybe for Christmas.

My daughter was in need of a curtain on her kitchen door to block the hot morning east sun. Here's her curtain. I went back to the fabric store to buy the rest of this bolt and it was gone. I love this material.

I'm Home

I had a great vacation visiting my grandkids. They made me feel so good.

They wrote on the driveway my Welcome and I love yous. My grandson even drew a picture of me.

I stayed seven days and left on the 5th. I love visiting my family but I love being home.
I brought my sewing machine, fatquarters, ruler, mat and my granddaughters learned to make a pillow. I'll show those pictures in my next post. I don't have any pictures of the completed pillows so I have to wait for my daughter to send them to me.
