Looking Back

The quilt chronicles continues with Corbin's Quilt.

For those new to this space, 
I have been showing my evolution as a quilter.
I make a quilt for each of my grandchildren 
for their second birthday.

This was a panel that I cut apart and then added simple squares
to make a larger than lap sized quilt.

 Corbin was such a cutie on his birthday, in 2008.
He's already grown up so much from that little 2 year old.
He'll be 6 years old in a few weeks.
Time really does fly.
He is such a sweet boy and gives the best hugs.

I like to look back at these quilts and see how my style
and technique has changed,
I'm hoping it is for the better.
I worked on this project today
that I started yesterday.
I love the fabric,
not just the design but it feels so good
and has a wonderful texture.

I'm putting the finishing touches on my Mouthy Stitches project
and will be mailing it out tomorrow.

Thanks for stopping by,

I like to look back, it reminds me how far I've come, not just style wise or skill level, but creatively. I'm doing things today that I never would have imagined when I started quilting 13 long years ago.
I can't wait to see what you do with the Echo, it's become a favourite!

Little boy hugs are the best! Love your dirt moving quilt.

Ah yes, I'm kind of embarrassed of some of my earlier quilts, ha ha! Growth is very very good :-)
And cute grandkiddo! How fun that they have you to make all of these wonderful things for them.

It's nice to see how you evolved through things. I cringe when I see the first scrapbook I made for my dad - he loves it though (there's no accounting for taste lol) I haven't made enough quilts yet to truly see an evolution though, it'll be fun to look back!

PS, love the Echo

Amazing how you have evolved in your quilting style and taste. Of course, the kids always love something that appeals to them...so I'm sure Corbin still loves his quilt.
