More Time Out for Quilting

Finally I can show you the quilt I made for Mira.  I've been keeping it quiet as a surprise, but she graduated from grade school last week and that made a perfect gift-giving occasion.  It took a while for me to get just the right idea for a quilt for Mira, and the inspiration came from a photo of her in the sunset at Yachats, on the Oregon coast.  Here's the photo:

And here's the quilt I made:

I used a kit of fabric fused to printer paper to print some photos of good times in Mira's life onto fabric to be imbedded in the quilt.  It was easy and fun.

The graduation was lovely.

Mira's bell choir performed

Mira graduates!

After graduation we had treats outside the school and Mira opened my gift.

What a lovely girl and a wonderful day!

Later in the week Mira spent some time with me and we did a sewing project.  Didn't she choose sharp-looking colors for this pillow?

Notice those flashy fingernails for graduation!

  1. What a nice looking pillow. So nice to have a talented Grammy to help her learn.
