Sugar and Spice and Everything Bright

"Sugar and Spice and Everything Bright" is my entry for the Mountain Laurel Quilt Guild's 2010 Exhibit. It is the quilt that I made with the help of my two oldest grand- daughters over the past few months. I knew that they would get a huge thrill out of seeing a quilt that they worked on hanging at the art center, so that is why I chose this one for the exhibit. It was such fun taking the girls to see all of the quilts on display, but the most fun came when a woman stopped to admire the quilt while we were there and getting to see the proud looks on their faces when they said, "I helped make that quilt!"
