    Worked all summer on these quilts for my grand kids for Christmas. They are couch size. Disregard the afghan that is showing between the ones on the back of the couch.

    Those are treasures for your grandchildren. Will they all be together for a group photo? They will be talking about the year made us those pretty quilts for a long time. Sweet memories!

    If the quilts are the exact “everything”, I am wondering how you distinguished which quilt was for which kid? I agree, with Ronda K that the kids will be looking back and talking about these quilts for years.
