    This has touched me so. You are such a sweet, thoughtful granddaughter, and I know your grandmother will love this quilt and all the love you have put into it. I am very sorry about your loss of your grandfather.

    What a loving gift. You did a good job. You are fortunate to have witnessed their relationship. True commitment in a marriage is in short supply these days. Blessings to you all.

    You have made her a wonderful quilt. She will be so happy with it and proud of you as well. Your grandparents have had a wonderful marriage and we don't see much of that anymore. I really like the quilting stitch you used. I'm going to check my machine and see if I have it. Thanks for sharing.

    A lovely story. You are blessed, indeed, to have been part of their lives together. Your quilt is lovely, too. She will, as you say, be so pleased to receive it from you, just as you've enjoyed making it for her.

    May God bless your family.

    Your quilt is lovely and will mean so much to your grandmother. I second all of the previous posts. Enjoy making the quilts with your grandfather's jeans and shirts. They will be equally treasured by your father and maybe one for your brother.

    She LOVES it!!! She said she will love it and use it everyday until she dies. I'll post pictures tomorrow. Very emotional day. Cried a LOT!!! Got the hat I gave granddaddy from UNT. He wore it all the time apparently. It is dirty and has paint on it. He used it. Means the world to me. Also I got the last birdhouse he ever made and the swing he was working on before he couldn't go back out to his shop anymore about 4 years ago. Means the world to me.

    You had wonderful Grandparents and I am sorry for the loss of your Grandfather. I, too, love the song: "Sweet Beulah Land" and plan on having it as one of my songs to be sung at my funeral. Your quilt is so full of love that I could feel it coming through your posts. The love for them you have brought tears to my eyes. Don't we all wish we had grands like you. What a wonderful DGD you are! Your DGM is blessed in so may ways to have you. God bless you...

    You are so lucky to have been a part of such an extrodinary kind of love. I was blessed to be raised in a home like that and my parents love, even though they are both gone, has carried me through many a tough time. Your GM will be so thrilled with your gift of such love and thoughtfulness.

    He told me "Momma it's soft!" That is always a nice thing to hear when you make a quilt.

    Sunday we went to see Grandmother (and my mom) and we gave her the quilt last. She LOVED it!!! here is my Grandmother with her quilt!
