    At Christmas my DH asked me to make simple quilts for a friend of ours and his two little girls. They travel quite a bit and hubby wanted something they could keep in Daddy's truck to snuggle. I posted pics of the quilts in an earlier thread...they were given as gifts...but little Miss Kaylee gave me the best gift ....she has not stopped loving on this blankie since she got it. To me...this is what quilting is all about.

    Thanks for sharing - she will remember you always for the love you put into that one special quilt. I made a full size novelty quilt for my grandson's before they moved away with their Mom in August. I told my 6 year old grandson that whenever he went to bed and the quilt was over him - to know that grandma was hugging him and watching over him. It gave him comfort as he spent many nights at our house since his birth. You do beautiful work.
