About Ningiu

Ningiu is the Greenlandic word for grandmother, since I'm part Greenlandic and because handicraft reminds me of my grandmother and mother I find the name appropriate.

Bloggers quilt festival 2009

This post is my entry to Park City girl’s quilt festival spring 2009. I’m not entering my best quilt because that is yet to come…. But I’m entering my first quilt ever.

Here’s the story: In august 2008 I was 8 months pregnant with my second Daughter Marie. Big as a house and in general discomfort, I couldn’t sleep at night, so instead I started sewing, and surfing the internet on how to make a blanket to cuddle my baby in.

And thanks to all you quilting bloggers out there I really learned allot, and came upon a pattern that was suitable as a beginner project. I know that I will continue to learn and get inspiration from you all, and that I definitely haven’t made my last quilt.

And now for the picture:




Thank you for stopping by, I hope you will come back and leave a comment once in a while.

First quilts are always special even if they aren't perfect. Keep making precious treasures for your children and others. It is one of the great joys in my life. I'm looking forward to being a ningiu so I can make fun quilts for my grandkids.

Beautiful little quilt to snuggle your baby in! The quilting community is certainly very helpful and I love how I can learn from others around the world :-) And I love the quilt you posted 4/21. I agree, it reminds me of a pond also!
