    I made this I Spy Quilt for a good friend from our church that had a baby girl. I used photos of all her family members. She says its now how they start their day. She crawls around on the quilt looking for Daddy, Mommy, Grandma..... I had so much fun making it!! I have been making baby quilts and gifts for anyone who had a baby in preparation for my own grandchild. Well the time is here....I will be a Grandmother on June 10, 2011.....
    Let the quilting begin.....Just thought I would share....

    That is a great memory quilt! I just love the idea of baby crawling around looking for the family. CUTE!

    And CONGRATS Grandma!!! How very exciting. I hope I'm a good 20+ years away from being a grandmother...but my mom tells me its more fun than being a mother. All of the love and sweetness, a fraction of the responsibility!! LOL

    My mother and I were just talking about making one very similar to that the other day!! Her first grandchild (my first child) will be here on March 20, 2011 :) Layton Jo already has more quilts and blankets then we are going to know what to do with LOL so we will NEVER worry about not having clean blankets for her :)

    What a cute idea to put family pics in an I Spy! I wish I'd thought of that when my kids were little ... have to file the idea away for grandkids but that better not be too soon since the oldest is only 19!

    Love the idea of family pics in an I Spy quilt and your quilt is beautifully done. Will remember that also for when I became a grandma....

    Great news on you becoming a grandma in 2011.
