    How wonderful to spread some happiness with a lovely quilt. Well done. I made a quilt each for my grandmothers and I know they treasured them.

    Grandma's smile tells the story of how happy she is with her Christmas present from you. Way to go.

    yes your right, the way this all got started was grandma gave me a treadle, so in turn i wanted to make a quilt for her and used the treadle to piece the top doing that wasnt easy but i learned alot through the process.

    Oh genghis .. What a pretty lady she is. Her face just glows from joy.

    The quilt is very pretty, so cheerful with all the flowers and sunny yellow in the sashings. Nice work, chris. I don't know if I could make a quilt on a tredle machine.

    Beautiful and she looks so happy with it. It's very appropriately named 'cause it does look nice and sunny and happy.

    SUPER! What a wonderful job you did - you are such a talented soul!!! Grandma looks ever so proud and Shadow added something very interesting too - neat you could use her gift to gift her back.
