Girls quilt collage project

Christmas was great. All my children and grandchildren were here except Betsy and her family. We had all kinds of fun dancing to "Just Dance" on the wii, (yup, even us old uncoordinated folks), playing games, eating and doing projects.  Here are some pictures of one of our projects.
I started out with my 4 oldest Granddaughters.  I had them draw a big picture on a sheet of paper.  Then we traced it onto a piece of muslin and I gave them bags of color coordinated fabric scraps and told them to cut little pieces and glue them onto the muslin. When they were finished with that, they cut them out and glued them onto a background. We made a quilt sandwich and quilted them by machine, sewing as many raw edges down as possible and then bound them. Here they are:  Oh yeah....I forgot to mention that the mothers came down one by one and joined in the fun.
Here is Sarah's little "Hooter". Of course she had Ben draw it for her so Her daughter Brynn says she cannot really claim it.  I know for a fact that Ben didn't put one piece of fabric on that drawing, so I think Sarah can claim it.
Here is a "Handy" little quilt by Val, the school teacher.  Could you have guessed?
This little tree with falling leaves belongs to Hannah.
This little red posie was made by Livy, Age 10.

Brynn, age 8, made this Christmas tree with decorations and a star on top.

 Abby made this wonky little sun to brighten up her day.

                                            CJ age 12 made this eclectic rose bud.

Kaitlyn, age 10, made this swimmingly fun fish!
Didn't they do an amazing Job?


  1. I'm so glad you showed these! I love them! It makes me want to make one too!

  2. Did Dad or Joe name my owl? This was fun--thanks mom. Kaitlyn and Brynn already made another one!

  3. Those are so COOL! I'm so glad you posted them! I didn't get a chance to see all of the great designs. I love how they are all so beautiful and unique! Much like all of the girls in the family:)

  4. I just looked back up at the name of that owl. Ha ha ha..I love it.

  5. What a creative crew all of you are! It looks like so much fun! You never cease to just amaze me! Maybe that's why I copy all your projects.

  6. That was so much fun! Thanks for sharing your talent and supplies:)
