Quilt With Us

My grandson Mike loves the Chiefs so he was thrilled when they won the Super Bowl.  I found this cute machine embroidered gnome design so made it for him as he has just moved in to his first apartment.  I found the Chiefs fabric at Joanns.  It was absolutely horrible to work with and I would certainly never use it in a quilt, but it worked okay for a pillow.  The original price was $12.99 per yard, but they had it "on sale" for $9.99.  Wasn't worth more than $5.99 per yard in my opinion.  It was very stiff and very off grain.  I'm sure he will like it though.  It is also on the back.

Thanks handstitcher.  I am very fortunate in that all 4 of my grandkids love my quilts.

Very cute, Janet! I love the gnome. What a great way to interest your grandson in your sewing endeavors. Never too early to ensure your grandchildren will respect and take care of your quilts some day!

I gave him his pillow yesterday & his face just lit up.  He is my oldest grandson & the apple of my eye although the other 2 grandsons & 1 granddaughter are as well.

The pillow is great and will be very appreciated.  I have also run into similar fabric at Joanns.  Thank goodness they generally have good coupons.

Looks great!  I'm appalled at the fabric prices you quoted though, at Joann's yet!  I pause at $12.99 at my local premium quilt shoppe!

That is so nice. He will love it. Considering the fabric was hard to work with, you nailed it.
