Thanks Linda, it was so much fun making the quilts and watching the grandkids and daughter open them at Christmas. My daughter knew she was getting one but not the fabric or pattern. Now my other daughter, daughter-in-law and grandkids want one. I have a photo album I promised my oldest daughter I would have finished by her 40th birthday. That is coming up real soon, so I've had to put the quilting on hold for now. I would much rather be quilting.
Is your photo a picture of your grandbaby and you?
I think this is the group I was in a while ago, but when I deacgtivated QWU for awhile and came back all my previous groups were lost. So here I am again, and remembered this group when I looked through the stash of quilts I have been making for my three granddaughters. The oldest is 12 years, so hopefully I have many more years to build this up. Thought I had more in here, actually, but there are 3 baby sized and a two lap or twin size. One christmas tree skirt, had three at one time, but gave two away last year to the parents of the GK, so eventually they will probably get them.
Welcome back Sherri,looking back a little way through our posts and we mention you and your quilts but there are no pics or posts.Strange that you disappeared altogether.
Nice stash of heirlooms you are creating.
I looked back too trying to find a picture someone had commented on. The only thing I can determine is that once I deactivated my account, all my photos were deleted from any posts I had ever made. I know that none of my photos were reinstated when I rejoined. So I don't have many photos in my "photo" link. Guess that will teach me not to do that again. When I deactivate on FB, all my info is retained and when I activate again, which I always do, everything comes back as it was. Oh well diff sites, different policies. Some of my quilt stash got smaller this year, as I gifted some of the quilts from the stash to others. So whatever is left when I am gone will go to my granddaughters.
I am a grandmother of two. My granddaughter just turned 11 and she loves to quilt. We are working on our own Craftsy BOM 2013 quilt. She is using modern fabrics and I am using "old school". I have a grandson who will be 17 he is into auto tech, but likes receiving quilts and helped me design the quilt I made for him.
I am an Hosta maniac, and have a nice size woodland garden. I still work full time, but try to find time for my sew each week.
I have always been very close with my granddaughter, but having her as a quilting partner is especially nice.
