    Christmas quilts for my grandchildren

    The first quilt is for my 10 yr old granddaughter. I backed it in flannel that I found this summer when we cleaned out my mother's house. She will have something of her "Baba" in this quilt. The pattern is Kansas Dugout.

    The second is for my 6 yr old grandson. He loves baseball, just like I do. I struggled for a long time as to what to do, and got this idea from the QB. I searched the internet for the silhouettes. After getting those blocks appliqued, I put them all on the floor and played until I found a setting I liked. Then I took a picture, and went to graph paper.

    I'm pleased with how both came out.

    Those are both adorable. I am sure they will love them for years to come. They will hold on and think of you every time they wrap up with them.

    I still have each of the quilts that my Mamaw and my Granny (Great GrandMother) made for me. My Granny has been gone since the 80's. I love them both very much.

    Lovely quilts! I love the pattern and bright colors on the first one! I also adore the silhouettes on the 2nd one! That really looks nice. I really want to make a quilt with silhouettes on them. Great gifts for your grandchildren!

    Well, I just love both these quilts. My 12-year-old GS plays baseball, but his true love is basketball. Guess I should start looking at images.

    And the first one is perfect for a little girl--they all love those bright colors.

    Thanks for sharing--gives me great ideas. I love this place Donna

    First of all, let me say I love both of your quilts. I love your labels too. The first quilt is absolutely stunning! I love how there are so many designs in it. The first time I looked at it, I saw the circles, then blocks then stars. Too cool!
