Ben Turns One


My great-nephew, Ben, turns one this week.  His present

will be a “Grandma’s Flower Garden” quilt. This top was

the last quilt top my mother pieced by hand.  I quilted it

on my Gammill.

Ben’s Quilt

Ben’s party theme was “down on the farm.” I needed a

gift bag that fit with his theme, so I started with a bag

from “Banana Republic” and added images cut from

my cricut with “Everyday Paper Dolls”

Ben's gift bag-side 2

First I used chalk and a cotton ball to create a sky. I then used  “Stampin Up” paper to cut my images. I used the following colors. (Garden Green-tractor & grass, Pink Pirouette-pig, More Mustard-hat & hay, Real Red-barn & back round for 1, Not Quite Navy-bibs, Tempting Turquoise-letters) I used  the”Zooballo”cartridge  for the letters.

Ben's card
Of course he needed a card to carry out the theme. (Papers are available from

The Birithday boy and his parents,
