New Quilt - Meredith Style



I have to show off this quilt made by Meredith, the pattern is Confectionery in a book titled

It all started with the fabric, Meredith fell in love with V and Company's Color Me Happy


Meredith selected "perfect circles" for the quilting design and it is perfect for this quilt.
Just check out those circles.



Here is the quilt in its full glory.  I love this quilt and when she heads to college, I might sneak it into my room.


I have been encouraging Meredith to start a blog but she didn't feel comfortable with that.  I told her to check out Kollabora and meet my Meredith Rae.  I love how she described herself


An everyday quilter, student, sister, and daughter with plenty of projects and dreams! "

Meredith's love of quilting and quilts is infectious.  I have made more quilts and purchased more quilting fabric than I ever have.  We have had a very fun summer of sewing, planning and shopping.  I  She just finished a quilt for her twin, Kaitlyn, out of this same line of fabric.  This quilt is headed to the long arm quilter.  She has several more projects planned but in one more week she heads back to college.  There is always Christmas break!



One more thing, Meredith helped Kaitlyn make a quilt for her college apartment bed.  Kaitlyn had so much fun making the quilt she is working on another one.  The last couple of weeks, I have been in my sewing room with both these girls and it has been so much fun!

  2. What a beautiful quilt. Your gilrs certainly have their mom's talent. What fun to spend time in your sewing room together. Some of my fondest memories of my mom are of time spent together sewing. Makes for great memories.
