Very Mary's Very Talented Grandma is the quilter in the family. She has created amazing quilts for every member of the Very Large, Very Extended family, including two for Very Mary with a third on the way. Very Mary's grandma has Very Mad skills. Very Mary, while Very Crafty, had never ever attempted to quilt. Until this year. "Self," she said to herself, "Very Grandma deserves a quilt." See, Very Mary's grandma has made all these beautiful quilts for everyone else, but no one has ever thought to make a quilt for her. Until this year.
Very Mary decided to implement her newly acquired embroidery skills as well as her novice quilting skills to create a whimsical, holiday-inspired, crazy-ish, rag quilt for the Very Grandma. To say that the project was a labor of love would be the understatement of the century. Altogether, Very Mary estimates that she spent about 50 to 75 hours on this quilt. It will be gifted during the Very Family party, and Very Mary cannot wait to see the look on her grandmother's face. She even wrapped some tissues on top, just in case.
For her first-ever quilt, Very Mary think it's Very Cute. In fact, it mostly turned out in real life like she thought it would in her head. And she assures you, things rarely turn out in real life like they do in her head. Like her whole first marriage. At any rate, Very Mary invites you to click on these photos to enlarge them.
