I pieced this top long almost a year before the announcement that my newest granddaughter was on the way; I saw the fabric in a catalog and had to have it, but found that I could get more of it for my money on Etsy. But the line is so muted that it doesn’t photograph very well. You can get a clearer look at the line, called Babes in Farmland by Timeless Treasures, HERE. Here’s a shot of the quilt up close:
The top sat in my UFO collection until just a few months ago; luckily I had plenty of fabric left over for the backing:
I quilted it in a meandering pattern. Another fun project, made with love for my newest granddaughter.
In Thriving in the 21st Century, I described how to assess whether or not your teen is “college material.” In this video, a man who holds a Ph.D. and has taught at several universities explains just how crucial it is that parents ask the right questions before sending their sons or daughters to college. This is well worth watching:
While hunting for a doll pattern (see previous post), I found another pattern I liked. I decided to make it in all three sizes for my newest granddaughter. They looked so cute together that I used the grouping at my daughter’s baby shower. You can find the pattern at Craftsy; it’s a free download, but you have to give them your email address. Totally worth it, I thought!
I wanted to make a baby-safe baby doll for my little granddaughter, but I couldn’t find a pattern for one in my pattern collection, and I was too lazy to go to the store. So once again an Internet search yielded the perfect pattern, and it was free to boot. I enjoyed making this little doll for a very special little girl.
