    My son is ten. The quilt he has, I made when he went from the crib to a 'big boy' bed. Last night he said to me "Mom, can you make me a new quilt that's bigger?"
    He's a tall kid and prob will end up at 6' or so. But I'm so tickled pink that he likes my quilts so much that he wants a new one instead of 'blankets.'

    He obviously has great taste! Nothing like a quilt made by your Mom.

    Isn't it great when they want a new quilt. My ten year old is working on his own quilt with me and his brother. We are going to do three. One for each of them and one for Daddy.

    I made this one for my 14 year old son about 6 months ago.. He drove me CRAZY until it was done. He loves it but wants another wolf one with the Blue Panels so he can alternate them. I think it is Great that our young children love them.

    It's wonderful to make quilts for our kids, but even more enjoyable is seeing them use them and love them. Maybe he would like to pick colors or a theme to help with the quilt. Have fun quilting.

    What a sweet son. There is no better compliment than to have your child ask you to make them a quilt. Get busy girl!

    It's always nice when the men in your life appreciate your work! I had a scrap pineapple paper-pieced quilt that vanished from my house and was found at college-aged son's apartment "I didn't think you'd mind!"

    I think this is so sweet and so familiar to me. I have made quilts for all my children and grandchildren and now a great-grand child.

    The first one I made was for my son and his future bride. They have been married 30 years this year. About 2 years ago, he asked me to make another because the one I made for their marriage quilt was getting thin. That started the ball rolling. Then I made for all my children then the grandchildren. For the grandchildren, I started out with a crib quilt size. Once again, I had a request for another quilt. One granddaughter asked for a bigger quilt as the small one was too small. That started the ball rolling again. I made her a second quilt, then went on down the line and made a larger one for each grandchild. I now have a new grandson, born on Sept. 11, 2011, gave him his crib quilt already and have his top ready for a larger quilt. It is a red, white and blue almost patriotic pattern that he will get for Christmas this year. Now have another great-grandchild, so it's on the way to more family quilts. Not "Ain't we got fun?" from a song of my growing up years, but "Ain't I got fun?" Signed: Happy Gram
