    Raised 3 sons and it wasn't until our first grandchild...a girl!...was born that I dusted off the sewing machine. Started making soft dolls for her which then lead me to start quilting. With Christmas around the corner here are some ideas that some of you might want to try for the children in your life. The patterns came from 2 books: Softies only a Mother Could Love and More Softies only a Mother Could Love...both edited by Jess Redman and Meg Leder. I followed the pattern for a couple and then did my own on the others. So much fun and would be a great way to use up larger scraps you might have lying around.
