It's hard to believe that almost a year has passed since I started sending her a monthly quilting package. My goal was two fold - to show her how much I love and appreciate her and to get her more interested in quilting. I think I'm batting 2 for 2 right now. She's really gone to town on learning new techniques in quilting.
A couple of months ago, I started adding the traced blocks for the Winter Wonderland quilt by Crabapple Hill to her packages. She's completed them so quickly that I sent her 4 more this month. Her background is a Bone kona cotton and she's embroidering them using a blue perle cotton thread. She's already finished the first 3.

As usual, I sent her block #11 of the Imperial Splendor BOM from JoAnn's and another quilting magazine. And finally, I included a pattern booklet called Calendar Quilts by Kim Schaeffer. It's a really cute collection of patterns to make themed quilts for each month. And like I mentioned earlier, there's one more item to this package. I'll share it once I've finished it and given it to her.
"Create in me a clean heart, O God,
and renew a right spirit within me."
