6 blocks finished

No I have finished 6 of 10 blocks for the big grandma quilt. Some has been easy to make, and others has taken more time.
I have used stithery at all blocks, and also colourpencils at some of them. I was not so happy about that, because I think it didn't turn out the way I thought it should.
I have to try it a bit more before I make up my mind about that.

You can see that the motives are quit different. Everyone of the grandchildren should make their own drawing, and the age of the children are from 4 years old up to 22 years old.
I still have 4 blocks left. But I think I will manage it at the end of the week. I am going to have a lady with a big quiltingmachine do the quilting for me. I have bought woolbatting to put inside, so it is going to be a really warm quilt. It will be nice to have in cold winterdays.

I also have to make some small blocks to fill in between some of the drawingblocks to get the right size on the quilt. I have cut it all, som it is just the sewing left.
There is not so much time to visit other bloggers now, because I have the focus on this quilt. I hope understand that, som I wish you all a very nice week.
