    Memories for Baby

    I made this quilt for my sister to give to her great great grandson. She will also give them a permanent pen to write in each square about his events during the first year.

    What a sweet idea!! I am sure they will love it.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    That is so kool. Did you make a label for this quilt? I am sure that even though it will be given to him by his Great Great Grandmother he should know that it was made with love by his Great Great Aunt. This is a quilt for all his life. Thanks for sharing. BrendaK

    Yes, my sister and I are going to write in one of the blocks to let him know who did the quilt for him.

    What a neat idea. The quilt is cute and absolutely darling. How hard is it to write on a quilted quilt with batting??

    We have decided to use a micron pen and did give it a try on scrap. It works fine with the quilt finished. Doesn't bleed through at all.
