Bea’s first quilt

It’s finished!  Bea sewed all the squares in rows and sewed all the rows together.  Then she tied all the floss at each block intersection.  I sewed on the binding.   It measures 38” x 46”.   The fabrics are all from Joann’s, has no batting, is backed with soft pink flannel, and is bound with pink and white striped fabric from Connecting Threads.


We had a little trouble getting a good shot because “someone” was being very helpful by playing peek-a-boo.


Bea created this tiny label that I sewed to the front  bottom corner of the quilt.


It’s  says:

To Ron

From Bea

and is very decorated and written with fancy letters. 

I foresee a lot of quilts in Bea’s future!

Linking up to WIP Wednesday.

    The proud little quilter, the quilt and the helpfull little sister! I´m also swooning over the fancy letters. How cute is that?

    Bea, you made a fantastic quilt! On my first quilt the points did not match as nicely as yours and I was much much older than you are.

  6. This is just too sweet and adorable! What a good job she did! Love the label!


  7. that's just sooooo cute. I love the label, she's such an artist. The quilt is totally adorable, way to go, Bea!!!

  8. Oh my gosh!! This is just too adorable with her playing peek a boo. Bea did a really nice job - good for her! Nice idea to do flannel on the back. It will make it nice for a summer quilt.
