A weekend with daughter 2 and grand baby...

Thursday I received a call at school from my daughter asking if she could come spend a few days while her husband was on a scout camp.  I so enjoyed her visit.  I also thoroughly enjoyed playing with sweet grand daughter.  She is 18 months and a happy little chatter box.  

My daughter is doing the Disney Princess quilt with me.  She didn't start with Ariel last month, but I got her rolling with Jasmine this weekend.  She has never paper pieced before and chose to start with the eye.  I am telling you that the eye has a ton of tiny pieces.  My daughter did amazing and didn't get scared off.

Here is the start of my Jasmine.  Daughter and I went through my stash looking for skin fabric and both fell in love with this one for Jasmine.  It was pretty tight getting two blocks out of this fabric, but I measured and cut while she colored paper piecing patterns, and I think there was barely enough.  I pieced the ones with "skin" in them first.



I also laid out my two sets of One Monthly Goal blocks to determine the layout for them.  I think I have settled on the photos below.  I also discovered that some applique' needs to be completed for some blocks.  These will be small, throw sized quilts.

I will make another Chevron Braid for the right side to balance it.



The heart block is not even sewn together and will have black all the way around it.  This is my "Black Memory Round Robin Quilt".  It serves as a memory of blocks I made for other people's quilts that year.

Love your princess. I’ll bet it was a fun weekend for you.

The princess quilt is going to be so cool! Just curious, with pieces that small do you have to trim your seam allowances smaller than 1/4"?

Those princess blocks are intricate, but they look great. Sounds like a fun weekend with your girl and her's. Congrats on finding time to stitch last week, hope this week is working out as well. Thanks for linking up with the 15 Minutes to Stitch.
