    Sheri--great pattern choice to use a variety of fabrics! How many quilts do you have to make from the scraps? (Sorry if you already told us, I missed it.)

    Grandma has 6 children and 23 grandchildren. The pattern is from PaintMeJudy's Scrappy Mystery Train. I plan on doing the grandchildrens all in this pattern so nobody will think I picked favorites. The 6 children (5 boys, 1 girl) I think I'll use all her plaids and do a Square in a Square pattern. I'm dedicating the next two months to this project. I need to see how many hubby can take back and show his mom the end of July when he goes to visit.

    What a fantastic gift! I don't know if you make quilt labels, but be sure to take the time to make them for these special quilts. It can be as simple as the 8 pointed star with a muslin or white piece for the center square so that you can write the name of the child/gchild, date and "From Mom's(Gma's) Scrap Bag.

    Here's a link to help you get started.

    Here's the label on the first grandma. All grandmas fabric was stored in her huge fabric closet. All the grand kids knew they were NOT allowed in there! Now they'll have a real Grandma treasure. (I hope lol)

    Nice touch SheriR
    Bojangles, sorry for loss and nice finish. Always touches my heart to see a quilt used as such.

    This weekend, I finished up five quilts. Yep, four baby quilts and one churn dash shirt quilt. I don't have photos yet, but I was so excited to get five finishes I just could not help but say something.

    SheriR -- holes in the middle? How interesting. Yep, you are doing a service for the whole family, so no worries about cutting into the fabric. Save some special pieces for a quilt for yourself...maybe pieces that you like and especially remind you of how special Grandma is.

    Nancy, I sure am sorry to hear about you FIL. What a lovely way to share his quilt with him. Kudos to your hubby for thinking of that.
