Quilt 84 - Great Grandchild Quilt #1


How many quilts does a new baby really need? We decided as great-aunts to make a quilt for each of the next generation coming into the world. We each made a sampler block using a prechosen set of fabrics. Betty added the counted cross stitch to her block which says, "When you sleep under a quilt, you sleep under a blanket of love". Julia and Gladys then made the tumbling block sashing and assembled the quilt. They also hand quilted the quilt. Happy Birthday, S. We love you.
