Work in progress Wednesday

I have a very busy week finishing up some quilting tasks. The first really big and super important task was finishing up the quilt for my husband's grandfather.

 

Gramps has always treated me like one of his grand kids and I really wanted to make him a quilt. So since Randall's parents asked us to host the party for gramps 80th b-day I made him a quilt that just make him a very happy person. His reaction was something I will never forget and made it all worth it. I will share more tomorrow.

I also complete this cute little table runner.

 

I made it as part of a tutorial series for building blocks with friends on a girl in paradise blog. It is a series of post feature bloggers who design a modern block tutorial to share with everyone. Take a moment to check it out, I promise that even though it looks like lots of little pieces, that I came up with a really fun way to do it with out sewing lots of 1.5 inch pieces together.

  1. Gramps' quilt is stunning. I don't think there's anything nicer than giving someone special a quilt you have made them. I'm making one for my sister's 50th in September.
