My DGD Quilt

Without going in to too much detail my youngest granddaughter was taken from her mum & after 18 month my youngest son (her father) has her living with him

Well my online   Quilting Group    did Heart blogs the members who did them signed them & put where they are & these which include ones I did & sent them to Nancy Hamm

She did a beautiful job of doing the quilt top, being that Nancy is in the USA & with cost of postage plus import duty ect it was decided to send the top to me & members had given me some money to help towards the cost of getting backing fabric wadding ect

Well got the fabric & Sew Simple Wadding & I was going to attempt to FMQ it myself well I chicken out as I knew I would not do it justice

So the lady who gave me a FMQ lesson Jan I asked her to quilt it well she done a beautiful job & if there anyone who wishes to have quilting done I can recommend her you can see further photos of the quilt on her blog at   Jan's Musing 

Here are some of the photos that I taken but do go to Jan's blog & stand by to be in for a treat, the quilt will be going up to DGD next month when I go & see her
