Almost a year ago I made a purple and pink supergirl cape for Ellie. I finally got around to making a pirate cape for Gavin.
This is the receiving blanket I posted a couple of days ago. I didn't like how bland it was with just black and white fabrics. I was going to unpick the whole edge and add red piping. Nina Lise and Vreni both suggested I just add something on top and not have to pick out all those threads. I found some red rick rack and now it has so much more personality. Love it now! Thanks for the suggestions.
I am 60+ years old and have been quilting for about 30 years. We have 8 children and 15 grandchildren and 1 great grandson and 1 great granddaughter. My children: 1 lives in Utah, 4 in California, 1 in Illinois, 1 in Idaho and 1 in England. My grandchildren: 4 in Utah,4 in Illinois, 4 in England and 3 in California. I love the process of finding the perfect fabric, cutting it out and sewing it back together. I'm not so enthralled with the hand quilting so I send my quilts out to be machine quilted most of the time.
