The “Good Job Raising Her” Quilt

Good Job Raising Her Quilt

When my niece Alexis graduated as valedictorian of her class, I made her this quilt to celebrate her accomplishments.  Then I realized that of course she didn’t get there alone, her parents had quite a bit to do with how she turned out!  So with the charm squares I had left over from her quilt, I  devoted a little time to cutting, piecing and quilting a gift for her Mom and step Dad, too.  (My brother.)

(It’s backed with a super-soft vintage sheet, perfect for couch naps!)

I hope that when Alexis goes off to college in the fall, her parents will feel one more connection to her through this quilt, made from the scraps of hers.

She is a daughter to be proud of, and that makes me proud of her parents, too!  Think of this as a major award, Jim.  ;)

You can find the tutorial for Granny Square Quilts here, and see another one I’ve made here.  And if you’re hooked and want to see even more, check out the I Heart Granny (Squares) group on Flickr!

  1. Well aren’t you the sweetest for thinking of the parents, too?!!
    I am making a granny square quilt, almost identical, to your original one and I hadn’t seen yours until just now! I have two charm packs of Malka’s fabric and a granny square quilt was the only thing I could come up with!
    Yours is lovely!

    • Malka’s fabrics are just gorgeous and two charm packs are perfect for a granny quilt! I hope you’ll like yours as much as I like mine — the colors are so vibrant and happy!
