My Quilt Festival Quilt

Ok, I haven't made that many quilts yet, but I wanted to join in the fun too!
Amy over at Park City Girl is hosting a Blogger's Quilt Festival( Thanks Amy!)  Here' my entry:
I really wish I had taken better pictures!
This one was made for my Grandma for her birthday. I used a lovely triple Irish Chain pattern from ModaBakeShop.

It is made with an Oh Cherry Oh honey bun from Moda and alot of White Kona Cotton:-)
I love the colors on this one, it was hard to give it up!

On the back I appliqued all of her great-grandchildren's hands and feet and put their names and ages on the label.




I wanted her to feel closer to her family since she is living in a nursing home now and can't get out as much.  She loves it and so do I:-)

What a treasure! I love the colors, but the back is so special!

This one literally took my breath away! How lovely! The colors, the fabric, the pattern and the back is enough on its own. Thank you for being such a sweetheart for your grandma!
Blessings!

That is a beautiful quilt, and even a more beautiful story to go with it! Thanks for sharing!

Anya said...

Cute! And I love the special touches on the back!

Marge Gordon said...

Your Irish Chain is darling, and the back almost as special as the front. And I love your blog header, those are some cute little toes!

Cara said...

The back is so cool. I really think I'm going to have to do something like this for my grandmother.

The back with the hands and feet is such a wonderful, thoughtful idea. Very sweet.

The quilt is beautiful, but it is so much more significant with the hand and footprints on the back.

Heather said...

this is just perfect! I love the Irish Chain, the hands and the feet. I just made a simple blanket for my grandmother with the hands of our babies embroidered on it--just three of her great-grandbabies, but I know she will love it when it arrives in the mail. So pretty and so thoughtful!

You haven't made very many quilts?!?! This is just incredible. The hands and feet on the back is a perfect touch. I'll have to remember that!

What a beautiful quilt for your grandmother. Such a sweet story. Triple irish chain is a great pattern, and I love the hands and feet on the back. Our family always tries to do something like that too with the grandchildren. Thanks for sharing.

Such a pretty quilt. The fabrics are great and I love the cheery fabric on the back.

Susan said...

Oh, it's almost like a growth chart, how special is THAT? I bet it was hard to give away and at the same time, you must have been so excited to give your Grandmother the best gift she ever received!

I'm terribly impressed, it looks hard to make a quilt like that, all those little fiddly bits! Nice job,CraftyMama!

Leslie said...

what a wonderful idea to put the kids hands and feet on it. what a wonderful way to make her feel close to all of you.
