One Year Later…Miah's Quilt

It took us longer than you might think just to stitch all these squares together in pairs.  All the deciding was exhausting!!
One year later.  

My Granddaughters Miah and Victoria came to visit.
 We focused on stitching Miah's Quilt, which has become a long term project.

We began last year with fabric which we cut into 4" squares.  Then we matched them 2X2 and sewed them together.  

This get together, we stitched all the squares into blocks of 4 squares.  With much thought going into which squares would be stitched together.

It was alot of thinking and sewing with breaks for  Cafe' a lait  and Beignets at Coffee Call.

There was alot more sewing to be done on this than we realized!
Then we laid out all the squares for Miah to decide how she wanted them to look.

And Miah stitched the blocks together to form horizontal rows.

Still a work in progress……. but coming along and looking good!


And we had a read good time.
