A Quilting Project with and for my Daughter

Got to work on the hummingbird quilt my sister bought for my daughter the other night. Decided to recruit my daughter to help me.

She traced all the shapes and cut them out.

These are the fabrics that my sister had selected and sent along with the pattern.

My daughter decided she didn't really like all of them and instead went through my stash and came up with this. I insisted on keeping the background piece (the big yellowish fabric on the right) and she picked the rest. Here are all the applique shapes on their fabrics. I have ironed them on and cut them out. Placed them on the background and they look great, although we had to move the flowers around a bit to deal with all the different fabrics she picked. She has also decided that she would like to have this quilt to cuddle with on the couch instead of up on the wall. Hope to get the appliques on the background this weekend and post an updated shot of the project at the beginning of next week.


  1. What a great helper you have!! And she's got a good color eye, too! :)
