Kylie's quilt I made these 2 small lap-sized (or wall hanging) quilts. I was still very new to quilting, but these were fun to make and I was looking forward to making another one for Haley's mama. I thought it didn't seem fair that she wouldn't get to keep these first 2 quilts, so I thought it might be cool for them (mostly for Haley's little sis) to have something they could cuddle with until the 3rd quilt was made.

She let me bring it over and also let me help her load it onto her long-arm frame so that she could quilt it the way it was meant to be quilted. And I am SO glad she did! It turned out beautiful and was finished just in time to be included in their Christmas holiday...a whole year after the first 2.
