Quilting with Chelsy

Tonight after I got home from the PW, Chelsy came over to sew.  I taught her how to cross hatch on a table runner that she needed to finish for her Grandma’s birthday gift tomorrow.  I think it turned out really nicely.  Since she safety pin basted it, and because the fabric had gold flecks on it, we decided to mark the 60 and 45 degree lines with masking tape.

While she cross hatched her table runner, I quilted one of her quilt tops.  This quilt was meant to be for her college dorm last fall.  Now she’s moved back home so it’s time to re-do her room and put it there.  I think it turned out great.  She was so worried about the borders being the wrong length and yet, they quilted without a single problem.  No easing needed.  I’m proud of her!

She did a great job! The quilt looks great. I like the cross hatching on the table runner. My mother would like that, she loves cardinals.

Love the quilt. It's so bright and cheery. You did an awesome job with the loops... it must be loops week. The cardinals are great. We just got in a Christmas Cardinal line that people love.

She did a great job on both items. The table runner looks wonderful and her new quilt would brighten up anyroom. Way to go Chelsy
