    I have just finished this quilt for my granddaughter Pippa to celebrate her 18th birthday. It's a double quilt containing 28 photos of her, from a few months old until just before Christmas. She lives in France and, since the age of 4, has flown to England unaccompanied, to spend several weeks with us, and to improve her English! All the photos will have special meaning for her and are a record of her visits! Where they live, in Brittany, the clear night skies are full of the most beautiful stars - hence the stars in this quilt! It's my first attempt at FMQ - previously, I've done SID - and I need a lot more practice, but I'm reasonably happy with it! The quilt goes off to France next week.

    Beautiful quilt. I'm certain she will treasure it forever and someday show her grandchildren about the good times she had with you.

    Beautiful job - she will love and cherish it forever. She will also know how much she means to you and how much you have enjoyed her visits thru the years.

    Excellant way of showing her your love,

    Be sure you give her instruction on how to launder it. It will save you from a broken heart later. Love the quilt.

    I'm doing a picture quilt for my grandson's graduation next year. I like this! Do you have a pattern for it? I would appreciate any help you can offer. Thanks, Beth
