    When my DGD found out this quilt was for her she helped(?) me all the way though. This morning when I had it layed out to pin, she came downstairs and promptly layed in the middle of it declaring she was tired and needed a nap. Then when I was tying it, she stripped her jammys and diaper off and wrapped up in the middle of it to help me more. When it really was finished she layed down and was asleep in five minutes.

    I hope the pictures come through.

    Oh that is so precious.

    The other day I found my son sleeping on the couch under a quilt I made. It doesn't get any better than that.

    Happy New Year, TaughtbyGrandma

    I believe the greatest joy for a quilter, is to see some one curled up fast asleep under a quilt made by her hands.
    It made my heart sing to hear my four year old DGD, tell her 15 year old sister how much time and effort and LOVE, Grama put into the quilt that I made her!! From the mouth of babes. . . .
