My daughter and her family moved last Monday and I am driving up to spend the day with them. My SIL accepted a student pastor position while he finishes divinity school and they will be living here for the next three years.
My granddaughters are on the front porch and my grandpuppy is looking out thru the storm door.
Monday afternoon, the house looked like this...
...but my super-organized daughter had almost everything unpacked in put away within days! She's amazing... I wonder where she got that from?
I wanted to make her a little something for her new home and yesterday, I pulled out some fabric to make a pillow cover, selecting Grandmother's Pride from 501 Rotary-cut Quilt Blocks.
This is a popular block recently. It is called Granny Square online and
a larger version is called Great Granny Square.
I used my large mini design board to arrange the pieces as I cut them, making it easy to move everything to the sewing machine.
After sewing the block together, I layered batting underneath and did a little straight-line quilting before assembling the pillow cover.
I'm also taking a batch of ginger cookies, too.... because that's what grandmamas are for!
