    Lovely quilt, you sure look like you had fun, I do miss those years when the kids were little and you could do fun things with them, I have my great neice to stay on the hols and we usually get out the paint brushes!

    Great job - the kids did wonderfully with the layout. Good way to keep them busy, and teach them a skill that they can use their whole lives.

    I just can't any of the girls in my family interessted in sewing, and I've sewed since I was about 9 years old. My passion!! But I do have a sweet niece that is really getting into the quilting, so I am enjoying her excitement as she tries a new pattern.

    Nice! How old are the kids? I took my first quilting class when I was 12, but remember helping with layout for my mom's quilts before that. Oh and your granddaughter's name rocks. (Haha, no bias here. My name is Megan.)

    Great quilt. It is wonderful that the kids are learning to give at such an early age. I am sure you had a blast on that spring break.
