Default Multi-Generational Quilt

When my daughter was 10, (she is now 27) she worked on a frog quilt where the frogs were synchronized swimming. She quilt working on it when she found out here fabrics/frogs did not have enough contrast. When I found the UFO when cleaning, she got all sentimental about the unfinished frog quilt of years ago.......
So, for Christmas, I asked her daughter, age 5, would you like to help me sew this quilt for your baby sister (age 6 mo)? She said, "It would be an honor, Meme" (no kidding lol). So she sewed the 4 blocks together, and I sandwiched it and machine quilted it. We gave it to baby, to be opened by Mom, from the GD who was bursting with pride.
Mom gushed with the "multi-generational" aspect of the baby quilt, GD was so proud, and Baby grabbed it and would not let go while she sucked her thumb.
It was the hit of Christmas Gift Giving. Just wanted to share. size is about 24" x 24"

Awesome story! Love that you have family interested in quilting, and the frogs are really cute. I liked your backing fabric too!

I love the quilt and the story. I also have had my grandchildren help me to make a quilt and they are so proud of their work. I want to keep it in the family.

You had a great idea here. Yes, the contrast is imperfect, but the quilt is sweet.
