    My first completed quilt for 9 yr old GD.

    Hi everyone
    I have been very busy making quilts for my 9 year old and 12 year old Grand daughters.
    Now I am going to try and post the pictures (I am still struggling with this new format).
    Not what I'd call user friendly. Or it is me who is totally thick. The purple and pink is having the black patterned fabric for the border and backing. What do you think. Will it pass.
    Here goes.

    Both are very nice, they should enjoy their special quilts.

    I think both are (or will be) great. I really like the black/purple/pink print for a young lady.

    Both quilts are very nice. The black fabric reminds me of the 60's. Great job!

    Love the quilts, your GDs will love them. Keep your machine humming, it gets lonely too.

    Doesn't it make you feel good to make something special for your grandchildren? And they'll never forget you for it! I, too, love the pink/black print for the border & backing! It's perfect!

    Love them both, but am hard pressed to decide if I like the front of the purple/pink one better than I like the border and backing. Either way, it's a hit!

    God Bless you all.

    Lucky Grands..I'm sure they will love them
    A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort :lol:
