this is of the new grandson and his quilt. he was born dec 24, 2009. the pattarn came from 'quick quilts' 4 yrs or so. orderd the matarial plus extra for future quilts at that time. a quilt like this 4 yrs or so ago was my lst applique. i like the look of hand applique, with artistic stitches --done like grandma's yrs ago did it.
