Last summer I took Julia to the quilt shop with me and she had a great time shopping! She found a Layer Cake (40 ten inch squares in a package) that she loved…and a pattern to go with it! We came home, cut the layer cakes into rectangles 5″ x 10″ and started to make the quilt. Julia arranged the colors, sewed the rectangles together, and we had some sewing fun!
Again, this was so “not me” but anytime I sew with Julia is a treat. This was not about what I wanted to do, it was about being with my favorite granddaughter, playing with the colors and fabrics and creating a quilt together.
It was quilted with swirly loops and flowers, but there are words quilted in the plain purple strips…..Julia Dietrich made this quilt with Grammy Summer 2015. It’s fun to look for the quilted words, and it was a different way of signing our quilt!
