Quilt With Us

I just signed up to join Quilt with Us. I am very excited. I am a teacher so do a lot of my quilting during the summers. I am just beginning to make play quilts for my grandchildren for Christmas.
I am making a 3-D flower wall quilt for my granddaughter that will be born the 1st of Sept. Next I am making a car quilt (with the roads in the middle) for my 7 year old grandson.
I want to make a pocket quilt for my 4 year old granddaughter so she can put her little stuffed animals to sleep (about the size of beanie babies). Does anyone have any good patterns for this?
Then I will have one left for my 5 year old grandson--but I'm not sure what to do one that one. He is into super heroes.
I'll send pictures when they are completed.

Well I would just love to be your friend, Karla! I just read that those sweet baby quilts of yours will be for your grandchildren. What a wonderful forever gift for them. Your daughter lives in Memphis? We sometimes make it out there to LeBohner's children hospital for my son. We're about two hours east of there. Looking forward to seeing your upcoming quilts! That pocket quilt sounds so clever ~ what a wonderful idea.

Welcome, Karla! You won't meet a nicer bunch of quilters than here at QWU. I have been entertained by their stories, cried right along with them when they have sorrows, laughed as well when they shared their comical situations. As far as patterns and such, someone always has an answer to those questions. I found a pattern, I will forward it to you, from Martha Stewart.

Hi Karla, welcome. You will find so many accomplished helpful ladies here!!!! Sounds like you have quite an ambitious schedule of quilting planned. I don't have a pocket quilt pattern but a friend of mine from OH quilters made the most adorable pillowcases for her grands' Webkinz. The fit a standard pillow for the child's bed but in the border of the pillowcase she put openings for the animals heads to peek through so they don't all end up on the floor during the night. Check it out - just search Kathy Steele here on QWU and the picture is on her page. You'll also get to see the rest of her amazing work!!! I met Kathy here on QWU but have been able to meet up with her in person twice since. What fun!!! Can't wait to see pictures of you quilts!

Welcome to this website. It is quite addictive. I too was an educator and retired a year ago. I have been able to catch up with many unfinished projects. I am so caught up that I am planning several new projects. The free downloads are nice and there are some great patterns. Welcome to this site and good luck with your projects.

Karla, welcome to QWU. Hope you have a wonderful time with us and that you will share your photos when you have completed your projects. Sorry I don't have a pattern to share that would have pockets.
