when children follow in our footsteps


we always seem pleased when our children follow in our footsteps...is that we can share something of how we feel with them...my daughter elizabeth does dabble in quilting...she is not OCD about it like am...a bigger then small blessing that would seem somedays...bali pops, layer cakes and charm packs are right up her alley...i understand this as i also don't like the hours of endless cutting that goes into some quilts...not that i would really know as i have finished only two quilts which required hours of cutting...any way here are some photos of elizabeth's and my WIP...she made the top...i quilted it and she must finish it by sewing the binding...

i stitched in the ditch...elizabeth is not OCD like her mother who loves to quilt every quilt to death...







detail of the borders...i had finished a baby quilt with these flowers and she loved them so into the border they went...i used we used my favorite thread...aurifil 50 wt cotton...
