    My Grandchildrens wedding quilts!

    Keep in mind my grands are 17, 11, & 6, we went to a friend of our sons wedding and he wanted a quilt, so I got to thinking what would I be able to do in 10 or 15 years when my grands started getting married. So I've started making their wedding quilts and putting them in a closet for when they take that step. I know I'm OCD!

    That is a beautiful quilt and will make a wonderful wedding gift.
    Good idea to plan ahead. They will keep you busy for a while.

    I love that and I love the idea. Great, now my family will starve and wear dirty socks while I am planning for the future!

    No you are very smart. And the quilt is gorgeous.

    My husband's grandmother made quilts for all her grandchildren and gave them to the Mothers of the grandchildren. I met the Grandmother when we first started to date but sadly by the time we were married, she had died. My Mother in Law forgot about them. She was cleaning a closet and found them after I was married for five years. That is what got me interested in quilting. I had never ever seen a quilt. I was fascinated.

    That quilt is just absolutely beautiful! And what a wonderful idea! You're not being OCD... you're staying one step ahead in the game & I admire you for it! My DD just got engaged & I wish I had her quilt already made & put in the closet... LOL!

    Gorgeous! Thinking ahead is good. I have three finished baby quilts (one totally done by my mom, the other two the tops were done by me and Mom hand quilted them) hanging in my sewing closet just waiting for the announcement that I'll be a grandma. We never know what life might bring, so these are insurance that family quilting talents aren't forgotten.
