I have started this tradition too. I give each expecting daughter or daughter-in-law a small quilt for the newborn. Then as each grandchild turns 2 they get a twin size quilt for their birthday. You all look so happy in your photo. hugs, Susan

I think we have gotten all of the GC. They range in ages 9 mon to 14. I've contemplated wedding quilts, and have several tops made. We'll have to see what health and energy is then.

Yes I am back home from China. Got home in June. We made another 3 week trip about two weeks ago. Vacationing in Thailand and Hongkong.

Nice quilt and a great idea, so the GC allways will think to her grandma if they use the quilt.
I have 9 GC and thought this is much...

I love your designs. I need to get back to digitizing. I became a bit discouraged when a company rejected my designs, and then I had a bucket of trouble upgrading my Bernina software.

Hi Terri, what a lovely quilt and I can see Jonas is thrilled with it. My goodness what a lot of GC you have! I've got 2 to make - one for Delphi and one for Chase, but have no time limit as yet. Love Chris

Yes, Jonas wanted Super Heros. I had quite a time finding fabric. I ended up using T-shirts for the blocks. They were so colorful, an on sale at the end of back to school sales. I was able to get a block from the front and the back.
