29 years later

Learning the hard way....1983 to 2012

This is a baby quilt that was made for my niece 29 yrs. ago.  Hand appliqued and hand quilted.  Back then, I didn't know any better and used poly/cotton fabric for the background blocks, borders, backing and in some of the applique.  It was very hard to hand quilt as you can imagine. 
Twenty-nine years later, this is the baby quilt that I made for her 3 month old daughter.  Hand appliqued and hand quilted.  Much better to hand quilt, for sure!

My nieces with their baby quilts.  Awesome!
Have a great day!
