    My grandson (21) told me today he sleeps under his quilt everynight and loves it. He wants me to make him another one but a little longer. doesn't It give you a warm feeling someone likes your quilts you have given them?

    In my book, that's the nicest thing anyone can say to me! :)

    Knowing someone loves your creation is the best feeling. When I miss my sister, Gina, I suggle under a quilt she made for me-and I'm almost 50! I'm glad he shared his love for the quilt with you.

    That's the best...My nephew is still sleeping under the quilt that I made him 6 years ago. When he got a dbl bed I had to add on to the quilt on the sides and the bottom. He didn't want a new one, he wanted the one he had.

    When I gave him the original quilt, I whispered to him that everytime that he cuddled up in the quilt, he was getting a hug from me. Many mornings he had to unroll himself from the inside of the quilt.

    My sister told me that my nephew used to re - make his bed if she had not put the quilt I made him on the top. I made it for him when he was eight. When he was a teenager of about 19, he very reluctantly let me repair a couple of squares that had come adrift. I was given strict instructions not to alter it in any way.He is 40 now and it is still in use in his house - reward enough.

    My grandchildren live a long way from me so I do not get to see their response when their quilts arrive in the mail.
    My daughter told me it was so cute when they decided to "camp out" in the bonus room. One had gotten a new lantern. When she went into see them, they were asleep in their sleeping bags with their quilts over them. They are 4 and 6 years old. Now Ella, their sister will be next to get hers.

    That's cute - even at 21 ! I'm sure he does need a longer one. It's great that he asked you to make him another. - Cynthia

    I was so happy when my SIL told me how much my niece loves her Minnie Mouse quilt/pillow case I made for her. Considering all the other cross-stitched projects I have made for that family are MIA!

    I have 5 gks each of who have at least 3 quilts. My 4 yr old in paticular has at least 5 or 6. When we were there last time he brought me his favorite quilt wrapped around him. I asked if I could take a picture of it with him and he turned in a circle and said yep. He just kept it on and turned a little for the picture. When were there for his b-day I was ambushed at the door and then each person that came in he brought over and introduced us to them saying this is "my grandma and grandpa". It was a little embarassing when the people he brought over were his other grandparents. I do know just how important I am to him hence I will never stop quilting for my grandbabies!

    When my granddaughter returned to Base, she made her bed with the quilt and pillow cases I made her and sent pictures to us. She said this is the Christmas tree Mom sent me and the awsome quilt Grammy made me.
