We had the unfortunate event of losing my grandmother in October of 2008, she was a great person, one of the kindest and happiest people that I will ever know in my life. I will be eternally greatful for being able to know her and love her and be loved by her. She was a crafter, she crocheted, she knitted, she sewed and she always had amazing works of art in her house that were all done by her. She was and will always be an inspiration for me. One thing that I will always remember is going for sleepovers at her house and she had these huge jean quilts on the spare bedroom bed and they would be so heavy and I loved to sleep in them because it was so comforting for me.
This is the blue quilt for Yvonne, don't let the pattern of the tree fool you, I'm not THAT good, it's a pattern that looks like patchwork and it's only a full piece.
This is the completed top of the purple quilt for Lena, the pattern is purple flowers.
This is my friend Ramona's blanket, it was also inspired by a stamp, it's random and I'm glad she liked it. It's a pale pink with black flowers on the fabrick but it looks almost white here.It's backed with a black fleece and I added two hearts to the right top side, I used to sign these little hearts with my name in high school and I thought it was a good memory for us. We're both only 28 and we've known eachother more than half our lives.
Here is an up close of the hearts.
And here is an up close of the stitching and the fabric. I hope you like them, I hope they like them. They were worth every minute of making them and I'm glad that they have a piece of me and my grandmother with them, keeping them warm, comforting them and inspiring them for new creations.
Happy crafting... :)
