a quilt and an apology

My parents came this weekend and brought the quilt that my grandma had carefully pieced despite her initial hesitations. The pattern was a little sketchy, my prep work less then ideal, and the fabric wasn't very "baby". Despite all of those challenges, my grandma was able to put together an incredibly beautiful quilt. It is amazing! The colors are perfect, it is big enough to fit a twin bed someday, but perfectly crib-sized when folded in half. She even had it quilted, which I didn't expect. It is so beautiful and perfect. So, here is the quilt...


And here is the apology...
Through my sewing class I learned a few things that I should have known before I attempted this project. It would have made my grandma's task much easier. Things like "prewash your fabric", "straighten your fabric before you cut it", "use the iron", "measure twice, cut once". So, grandma, I am sorry that I didn't know this stuff first, which made things much harder then they should have been and thank you for making such a wonderful quilt for our baby.
