I miss both my Granny Agan and my Grandma Miller and think of them often. My Granny was an excellent seamstress and my Grandma an excellent quilter. Boy, they would be proud if they could see me now...
I just completed my first quilt!
The Winter Volunteer Ladies here on the RGBI campus have an amazing quilt-making and giving ministry. Their quilts go literally around the world. One of those ladies, Judy, taught quilting classes in her home area before coming as a volunteer and she offered to teach me and Cindy, another missionary wife to quilt in the afternoons. So after the boys' schoolwork is done, I have spent 3 weeks or so, quilting in the afternoons. I loved it!
For my first project, I chose a baby quilt, because it was smaller, looked easier, and my friend Cindy had told me how easy her first one was. I think it turned out so good, especially for an amateur like me.
Here's a few photos to tell the story.
Cutting, sewing, piecing together....

Such a sweet lady!
