Dolphin Cove

A whole cloth quilt, fabric painted and machine quilted.
A joint project from Elizabeth (granddaughter, 8 years) and my self. Elizabeth did the original fabric painting and some brown paint leaked onto her painting. So I helped to define things a bit and fix the mistake

  1. What mistake!  I think it was a happy accident especially when it becomes a project with Grandma.  This is beautiful.  Hey, Elizabeth…can I adopt your Grandma?  I’d like to be able to do this too!  lol

  2. Thank you both for the praise, the wall quilt and granddaughter are both at home in Atlanta and I am back at home in NM.

    The quilt is not very big (approximately 15X18″). It only took me about 3 days to actually turn the original fabric painting into the wall quilt with quilting. I do have a tendency to work fairly fast but my pieces usually not very big. That is one thing I need to work on :), my stitching is another.

    I am glad that Elizabeth enjoys some of the things I do and wants to help me do them. At least until Teen-angst hits. lol

    By the way joesmom101, I would love to see your Pirate blanket.
