Kayla's Kwilt, not Kwick but very Kute!

Mikayla's quilt, a year in the making, is finally finished. We started this last year with two long sessions of work. Busy schedules, conflicting schedules and life got in the way of completion. Last June we were going to finish it while at Pacific View Retreat in Manchester, but a certain person, whose name starts with M, forgot to pack it! So here we were 6 months later, back in Manchester, and it got done.

Mikayla did most of the sewing - all she needed was a few pointers and she was off and running on her new Singer sewing machine. The corners came out great, the colors all go together well and it is adorable. The theme is chickens, horses, cows and dogs, with a pair of jeans and a Davis Golf Club shirt from the family stash. Very cute and most fitting for animal loving Kayla.

I wish I had this view to photograph all my quilts. Green rolling hills spotted with cows and horses, and all a nice walk from the beach. The vacation was short and sweet. (Too many sweets eaten by this shorty.)
