quilt in use

Aili Evelyn 30 months

 It's nice to see Aili using the quilt I made her .  She had it in her crib last October when we visited.
 Her room is filled with colour and light, another of my quilts is on a wall.
That one (pictured above) is inspired by an Emily Carr painting, and is covered with blanket stitch embroidery - quilting.
 I was pleased to see that these quilts are such an important part of my grand daughter's life.
We visited Aili again just before Christmas, and found out that she has moved out of her crib into a big girl bed. After all, she's going to be a big sister in January!
I hope that her quilt will help her through this big transition.

The colors, quilts, light and many thoughtful objects in your beautiful granddaughter's room - a magical place has been created in which she can thrive and grow and dream. Each time I visit here I am filled with images and inspiration that stay with me. May this be a very happy new year for you and your family, Judy.

Hello Judy,
quilts make life cosy. My friends son, a early morning child, slept 2 hours longer than usual when he used the quilt I made for him the very first time. What other compliments do we need?
Happy New year
xx Doris

I am sure the quilt will be a big help to Aili as she welcomes a new sibling and figures out who she is in relation the new one. :-) Tidings of comfort and joy!

I have admired the log cabin quilt on Aili's bed since you first showed it here. Along with your other beautiful work, it surrounds her with love.

Love how you have interpreted Emily Carr's "Scorned as Timber, Beloved by the Sky"

Both quilts are really beautiful. It must be so satisfying to see them being used! It's interesting to think about how these quilts will influence her in the future.

I love this quilt-I loved it when you were creating such a touching tribute for your grand-daughter! I also love the interpretation of the Emily Carr painting.

What a splendid Log Cabin quilt!! The one on the wall is amazing, what a very lucky grand-daughter.
