lovingly stitched

Little cot quilts are my favourite fast finish, a great way to try out ideas, fabrics, color combinations, 
and of course, just perfect for teaching purposes! 
My daughter & I shared another lovely day together this weekend
as she began sewing her scrappy charm squares up into a quilt

Here's a few more progress pics...

The plan is to tackle quilting & binding next time my daughter pops over,
... maybe tomorrow... she's very keen!
So exciting to share my love obsession of joining up fabrics with her

Linking up to 'oh scrap' over here  


  1. It will be a beautiful quilt, Linda. You've taught your daughter well: look at her perfectly matched seams. (Not that perfectly matched seams make a great quilt.)

  2. It's so much fun working on a project with a daughter! When I visited my daughter in April, we made a pen/pencil rollup case together, that we designed as we went along. I really enjoyed sharing creativity together!
    That quilt will be a treasure!

  3. The colors in this quilt are lovely. What a great memory to sew with your daughter. Thanks for sharing with Oh Scrap!

  4. Just found you! I do so enjoy scrappy quilts and will enjoy watching what you create!

  5. Just found you! I do so enjoy scrappy quilts and will enjoy watching what you create!

  6. Oh I love the red star with all those scrappy charm squares, your daughter must be thrilled with the finished quilt top.

    1. Yes, she is very happy – especially as she got it finished just in time for the baby shower! Let’s hope she is now hooked, I’ve got a lot of scrappy stash I need help using up!

  7. Fun red star among the blue squares; lovely!

  8. These look great, Linda. I'm so pleased your daughter has "the sewing bug"!

  9. What a lovely way to share your passion and the day.
