On a visit with my grandgirls, I was doing some redwork for a baby quilt, so I thought they might like to give it a try. They were eager to learn, and I thought that at ages 4 and 6, they did a great job, patiently poking the needle through the cloth to get the stitch in just the right spot.
...while I worked on these squares...
...to make this.
Our quilt group held a charity show last spring, and this was one of the raffle quilts. We made a large stacked coins quilt to give away, and the leftovers made great sashing for this baby quilt. I drew the pictures on the white cloth with pencil, and my friend Nan and I embroidered them. I love using up every little bit!
