I love to embroidery; but I always said, “what do I do with the finished pieces.” Then a new friend explained that you sew sashing in-between the finished pieces, sew the rows together, place batting in the middle, put a back on it and sew some binding on – and you have a quilt.
So the first quilt I ever put together, over 20 years ago now, was my sons baby quilt.
I had an embroidered pillow case my Grandmother had made and wanted to incorporate that piece, so I made a three generation quilt.
My Grandmothers block is with the light purple background and outlined embroidery.
I prefer filling in my pieces.

My mom’s contribution:
I told my mother I was pregnant by saying…”you know that baby blanket we are working on? – We have 9 months to finish!”
