I don't know if any of you remember my other projects but I like to work on things with my kids.  They are always eager to help and it makes the gift that much more meaningful if it was a team effort.

There were the embroidered towels.

And then the hand print quilt for my grandma.

Now the embroidered quilt for my dad. (Crazy 3yo boy not included)



This was made by Jessica, 9yo 10yo.


This is my work.


Junie (who is obsessed with ducks), 8yo.


Another one of Jessica's.


Here it is on the clothesline.  It is a full size and backed with a blue king size flat sheet I cut to fit.


Thanks for looking. Smiley

That is fantastic! It is really great that your daughters are able to have the patience at that age to learn to embroider. They are really good at it. How long have they been doing embroidery? My grandma tried to teach me how to crochet when I was younger but I didn't have the patience then.

I taught the girls November 2007 so Jessica was 8, Junie was 6 and Jillian was 5.  Admittedly, Jill and June had difficulty finishing their projects back then and I ended up completing them.  This time around I still had to finish a tiny bit but only because I was ready to put it together and they were busy playing outside.

Excellent work.  Good that the kids jump in.  Great for their future crafting skills.

This may not happen, since I have had major surgery on my shoulder.

Great job!  I just read your signature and see it says mom to 12!  How do you even find time to quilt?   Smiley
