    That is a great idea. Well done.
    Home is where the heart is, and a few scrappy quilts.

    What a great idea!!!! I think i'll make one for myself with my two precious kids hands. I've always loved having their hand prints as they grow. They're 15 & 13 now so i better get all the hand prints i can!!!!!

    It is adorable!! Some yrs ago I got my 7 GK to do their hands, cut them out of different color foam & used as a border in the playroom. Still have the hands but of course they are soooo big now. That room is now my sewing room. Was thinking of using 1 of each to put up on a small wall. Even outling on a t-shirt.....

    I saw your quilt as the Quilt of the Week on the home page. It is so darling. And what a great idea to save the memories of your grandkids. I can see putting these on a sweatshirt, too. Thanks for sharing.
