    They are all beautifully done!! I am sure that is just the tip of the iceberg!!!

    Take time to be friendly... It's the road to happiness.
    Take time to give... It is too short a day to be selfish.

    Welcome and I love all your quilts. I especially love the one made of your brother's shirts for his daughters (I am currently working on two of those) and the "granny and me" one. You are so blessed to have such a memento. Thanks for sharing your wonderful work and once, again, welcome aboard!

    I think the story would be that my sister in law discovered the Eleanor Burns "Around the world quilt in a day" pattern and she started to make one fore each of the three couples in the family for Christmas, at that point, I had only made a hand ful of quilts, mine was blacks, reds and greens. She told me how she made them, and copied the directions and mailed them to me. I made one for my Godmother. It was the easiest quilt in the world to make. I didn't do it in a day... it took me about a week. But, mine was Queen sized.

    I decided to make one for each of my 7 kids, and promptly started collecting the fabrics, I collected them on every sale I could. I was making Christmas quilts also. I made the King Size for my own bed, and continued to collect fabrics for the kids. My daughter teased me every year when opening gifts as to was "THIS" package her Christmas quilt. I had all the fabrics, washed pressed and ready.... for 7 quilts for 7 years. ROTFLOL. This year... I did it.

    And every time I made a quilt she made a new remark. Like the shirt quilts and baby quilts or my sons for his wedding. She teased me badly.

    I asked her what she wanted, and she said an I PAD... I said Uh... Ok. and pulled out the fabrics she had chosen 7 years ago and put it together, and one for her daughter, and one for her son. LOL.

    This is for her girl, Mia Jean Made from same fabrics as moms


    This for the boy, with one of his fabrics matching moms.


    All three quilts are made with the same rotary cutting, sewing, recutting, resewing technique used in the quilt in a day pattern.

    PS... Thank you all so much for the wonderful welcome! Crafters are so friendly The granny and me quilt is very special indeed. My great granny was the quilter, she made them by hand. She had the most perfect stiches ever. When I was in the 3rd grade she went into a nursing home and all of her stuff put in my granny's attic. When granny passed, my uncle moved into the house. No one looked up there at all. When his wife passed 17 years later, his kids cleaned out the house and I moved in. No one looked in the attic. Until my daughter who is curious climbed up there. And there in a box that fell apart when you picked it up was TWO completed hand pieced tops, the 17 eight point star blocks, hand pieced, a package of hand crocheted doilies she had made, embroidered pillow cases, and some fabric. And... all of her quilt patterns she had collected out of the KC Star newspaper from 1920 to 1945. The blocks were wrapped in brown paper and twine that crumbled when I picked it up.

    I called my oldest sister to see who they would belong to or go to based on them being great Granny's. Well, as it turns out, the will stated that My uncle got the house, but my mother was left all of the belongings in the house. I remembered when I was 19 and granny passed, they had taken everything (furniture and all) to my mom's house and then she had given us things. I didn't know what was specified in the will.

    So, as it turned out, by line of succession, that stuff I found in the attic belonged to my mother, or one of her kids since she had also passed by then.... which is ME! No one else quilted or sewed or wanted it, my oldest sister as exec of the will, granted them to me! I got it all. I had the two tops quilted, and played with the blocks for years until, I decided what to do with them. I had only started my first quilt that year I was in the house. I did french knot blocks in an eight point star pattern.

    And that is how the Granny and Me came to be.
