    WOW what a great job she did. She looks very proud and I'm sure you are very proud of her. What a great vacation for both of you!

    Cute girl!! She did a wonderful job matching up her seams for her first time out of the shoot. Looking good!!!!
    A finished quilt excites me!! Whether is it mine or yours!

    T is it True? H is it Helpful? I is it Inspiring? N is it Necessary? K is it Kind?

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    What a very talented young lady. And I know you are enjoying this twice as much as she is. All grandmothers that quilt take real pride in teaching their DGD's to piece quilts. Ask me how I know

    Seems as though you've created a next-generation quilter!! She did a wonderful job piecing the top and quilting it. I love her color choices. Very cheerful - both her and the quilt! Please thank her for sharing.
    The bad news is - time flies.
    The good news is - you're the pilot!

    Fantastic!! Hope she's as proud as the quilt is pretty!
    If you see someone without a smile, give them one of yours!

    alwyas awesome to see what the next generation of quilters is up to. How cool is that that she is making quilts for her siblings instead of herself to start with. Great mentoring Grandma and great quilt grandaughter

    She did a wonderful job! It's really nice to see young people quilting...and enjoying it.
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    She did a great job!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.
