Brenna's quilt

I finally finished Brenna's quilt! Yay! This was the first quilt where I actually had a pattern. It was easy and fun to follow.
Brenna picked out the material. She wanted all greens. She picked light, dark, lime, kelly and any other shade you can think of green. She's very happy with how it turned out and she says it's very cuddly.

This is the label I made for her quilt. It's the third quilt I've made and I've named each of them. I know it sounds weird to name a blanket, but I read about doing that on a quilt website. I think it's a neat idea, because hopefully one day I'll have hundreds of quilt I've made and I'll be able to look at the date and who it's for and it's name. I named this one "Patchwork of Purpose".
I'm already dreaming of the next quilt!


  1. I LOVE the quilt!!! you did a fantastic job. I think it's a great idea that you name them. I wish I would've done that. Keep up the good work.
    Brenna, love the colors, you did a good job picking those out all by yourself.
    Love and miss you all,
    Love, MOM/Grandma

  2. Kami.. I will send the instructions and some patterns for the butterflies to Tabitha.. She said she will see you on Labor Day... I do not know how to send it by internet... They are easy to make and even your kids can do them.. You wil need... a clear pop bottle ( 2 litter ) the 20 oz are too curvey.. fabric paint, some clamps ( I have used clothespins ) and some thin wire for the antanaaes.. ENJOY Carole
