    These quilts are for the 4th and 5th grandchildren of DH's Navy roommie on the USS Hancock. They were Naval Aviators. His wife and I share the same birthday. We've been friends forever - and for years they thought they'd never have grandchildren, and shared ours vicariously! Now they've caught up! Jason and Galen were born Oct 1, 2008. The sailboat on a lake them is because they live by Lake Tahoe in CA.

    Love your theme quilts. They are beautiful. Those are a couple of lucky kids. Are those original patterns? They are great!

    These are absolutely gorgeous! Are the backgrounds paper pieced? What a great job you did. Congratulations.

    Yes, I designed the quilts. I paper-pieced the sun rays, added the round part as curved piecing. I SHOULD have paper-pieced the Kaleidescopes of the sky and water! That would have saved a lot of points.

    The theme has 2 meanings. The twins and family live at Lake Tahoe, CA. Their grandma and grandpa were BOTH in the Navy. My DH & their Grandpa were roommates in the Navy.
