    One of my cousin has three girls I had never met before last year. So when I was going to be in her neck of the woods, I decided to make the kids something so they wouldn't forget me. I also finished these up on a work-trip last December.

    Tell me what you think. I am considering doing them again.

    The youngest one is only 6, so I opted for a lot of color-I won't use 2-1/2" squares again

    The middle girl is 9-this pattern spoke to me

    For the oldest girl- I used half of my remaining BOM's

    All three are great, but I really love the first one. I've never seen a quilt done in that type of a pattern before, and just may have to make one!

    It is not nearly as bad in a 4-1/2" square with sashing. I made another one with this size block, same color and it worked up in no time-compared to the 400-block montage you see there!

    I love the first one best, also, but I know what you mean about the size of the blocks! Great work on all of them!

    Love them!!! You did a great job and what kid wouldn't want one of their own specially made just for them quilts? I still have the quilt that my Great Granny made for me. I love that thing!! I got it when I was very young-don't even remember not ever having it. She died back in 89 so......it's been mine for many many years. I'm sure they will adore them. Now the parents may get a little jealous! LOL :lol:
