I was just talking with my daughter, who was telling me about my granddaughter's 1st grade school journal she had recently seen at her parent/teacher conference.
I started last Spring making each of our kids, their spouses, and our grandkids, a 'birthday quilt' for their birthdays. 20 of them in all! Allie recieved her's last August, a 'Hannah Montana Church Dash'!
Allie, who is in 1st grade, and 6 1/2 years old, wrote quite a long journal entry about them! She remembered each one! My daughter said she had gone into great detail about each, what colors I used, etc!
I would have never dreamed the quilts would have made such an impact on her! I'm guessing she knew of the love and caring that went into each one, and it was that 'specialness' which stayed with her. ~ that or she's going to be a quilter herself in the near future! ;)
I just wanted to share that with you all.
Diana :) :)
