Default In the process of making a Play Quilt

This is going to be for my new Grandson due in March his name is going to be Parker Stihl and my son as you can probably tell is a big Stihl chainsaw lover. I am going to add crinkle trees logs a mirror sun and maybe a squeaker tree. My grandpa always talked about the tree squeaks so it will be a story to pass down to him. Hope this pic comes through it is by no means perfect but hey I am proud of it.

I love it! I know that the little guys are fascinated with chain saws. When my nephew was 3 or 4 and visiting my parents on the farm, my dad had him help clean up some small trees. Safety was a big issue, so everything was done by hand, including moving the small branches in a toy wagon. My nephew was sure there was a better way and kept urging my dad to use power tools. He kept saying, "On my farm, when I was a grandpa, I had a CHAINSAW." He grew up to be a certified John Deere mechanic!

Your grandson's play quilt will make memories for your family!
