    We got back from MN and the two grad parties on Sat. Here are pics of the quilt. I'm sorry they are not better pictures. Not sure what happened. The close-up isn't very good, either. I thought it would be okay to just crop it, but I should have taken a close-up picture. Anyway, here they are. I'm posting the front of one and the back of the other. They are both reversible. I have pics from baby to jr. high--mostly with the family; the other side has jr. high & high school--mostly with their friends. Hope you like them and thanks for looking! ~Judy

    Love how you 'framed' each item. It's wonderful.

    Thank you! They do like them. I wasn't sure how the boys would respond, but they like them as well as the girls. It's so nice to make something for someone when it is really appreciated!

    I like your quilts and especially the layouts. I think you did great and it is so nice the kids appreciated them. They will be around for much longer than most any other gift they could have receive.

    Thank you. They will be around a long time--hopefully, but their grandfather's gift will be around even longer. He makes each of them a chest for graduation and they are so nice!
