    6 Grandkids, 6 Quilts Done for Christmas

    A person asked that they all be posted together after I had finished this year and a half project. I hope you enjoy looking at them all. I have tried to make them individualized for each child. There is a wide variety of colors, and patterns.

    The one I finished first last year for third granddaughter. At the time, I hadn't conceived this plan but she loved this so then I started to thinking about one for each.

    Made next from leftovers and a few new fabrics for third grandson since he is a hunter like his parents.

    For second granddaughter who sparkles in orange. But I have a pink one in reserve in case she wants to match her decor.

    For oldest grandson who was so entranced with this panel that I had to include it in the quilt.

    Finally for the youngest grandson who loves monster trucks. I am glad to have accomplished this and I have many more on the bucket list. Hope your plans for Christmas are also coming along smoothly.

    They all are special and coming from 'grandma', makes them all the more special.

    All of the quilts are wonderful, but I asked myself which one was a favorite? After scrolling up & down a few times I chose the the purple one. The orange one came in second...Thanks for sharing

    Christmas is gonna be fun at your house!!!
    Dream as if you'll live forever. Live as if you'll die today.

    Some people are like Slinkies - not really good for anything, but you still can't help but chuckle when you see one tumble down the stairs.

    Amazing - so beautiful I would put them up until they (grandkids) were 35 or 45 so they could appreciate them.
    I know, I know quilts are for using but your quilts are wonderful. Thank you.

    Wow!! You have been busy. I am sure each grandchild will treasure these "works of art" especially being from their grandmother.
