Mommy-Daughter Quilt Blocks #2

First I would like to thank everyone for their amazing support last week. Your comments kept me smiling, and in case you're wondering, my finger is fine:) 

This week has been so busy that I can't believe I finished that quilt only a week ago--it feels like it's been a month already. I wasn't able to get a lot of sewing done, but I wanted to show you the progress my daughter and I have made on our blocks. Her block is the one above. She decided to do the diamond shape, and we just rearranged the blocks until we found something we liked. Here's my block:

I am loving how these are turning out. They are both so colorful and it's really a lot of fun to have an enthusiastic little sidekick. I told her when her quilt was done she could do anything she wanted with it--keep it for herself or give it away to whoever she wants. She hasn't decided yet, but secretly I'm hoping she gives it to me;)

I have something I want to show you next week that I'm really excited about!! So until next time...

Have a great week everyone!


  1. Both blocks are beautiful. It's amazing how the choice of fabrics gives a little different look to the block. I love seeing you and your daughter sewing together. Even after I left home, Mom and I talked sewing strategies across the 1000 miles separating us. I'd still call her for help or even just advice. She made my wedding dress by asking me to go look at patterns and then tell her what I liked and didn't like and she had it finished except the hem when I got home five days before the wedding. She didn't tell me until after the wedding she had a blood clot in her leg. What moms do for their children!

  2. So cute! I love that your sewing with her! Hugs!

  3. Love seeing what you two produce - so pretty! I'd be hoping she'd gift it to me too!
