This top photo is the actual project she put so much time and effort into. Look at all the triangles, look at all the nicely cut squares and the big rectangle, she was so proud of herself. She said she used pink in it because that is her favorite color and she used yellow in it because that was my favorite color as a little girl...the green, red and purple...that is because she is a 6 year old girl I guess, I think the pattern is cute too. I really love it. She had some time to kill so she did another "quilt" on the back. This larger one got cut down but I had to take a picture of it too. I have now framed my birthday quilt and have it in my craft room.
What I think is so neat about Emily's first quilt is that she gave it to ME. I think it was about 15 years ago my mom took a quilt class. The first quilt she made was a wall hanging, she gave it to my Grandma, her mother. After finding out my mom had taken a quilt class I thought to myself (no offense mom) "if my mom can quilt, then I can quilt" so I took a quilt class and gave that first project to my mom. Now years later my daughter gave me her first quilt, even though it is not made out of fabric it is made out of love and I know she was thinking of me the entire time she made it, I just love it.
