    My Grandbabies' Quilts...so far! :-)

    When I was a young mother, I wished my children had grandmothers who quilted. I was a little sad they didn't. Although it was hard to imagine at that time, I thought, "I'll be a grandmother some day!" It was then that I started teaching myself to quilt. I have no idea how many I've done since then (30-something yrs. ago), but the ones I've done for my grandbabies are favorites!

    Madeline's Quilt (1999) I didn't take very detailed pics in those days. Each duckie was different and cross-stitched.

    Noah's Quilt (2002) Again...pic not so good. There was a cute little fishing boy in the center.

    Jack's Quilt (2004) Actually, I was behind on this one. I didn't make poor Jack's quilt until I found out my daughter was pregnant again in 2007. In my defense, my husband and I were doing mission work at the time in Honduras...does that let me off the hook??? Since he was so interested in pirates at the time, that's what he got!)

    Luke's Quilt (2008) Made in Honduras.

    Georgia's Quilt (2009) Made in Honduras. She HATES her quilt! My DIL loves anything old...guess that's why she loves me! We chose 30's-40's reproduction prints and an older pattern. Don't know if you can see it, but along the curve of each fan I hand embroidered flowers.

    Nolan's Quilt (2010) I found this pattern here I used mostly fabrics from Robert Kaufman's line, "Chirp" by Katie Hennagir

    You are one talented Grandma. The pink fan is my favorite, because I love repro fabric, but they are all so cute.

    What beautiful keep sakes you have made for them - I am sure the little who "hates" hers will love it later! I am so glad I am learning to quilt, I didn't start till I had grandchildren!

    I am so glad your Grandchildren have a generous Grandmother who quilts. I don't know which I enjoyed more, the quilts or the babies.

    Your grands are all beautiful and your quilts marvelous. I can't wait to be a grandmother..maybe that is why I had to learn to quilt. Congratulations on your upcoming arrivals.

    The quilts and babies are all beautiful. I love the 30's fabrics. I think they are my favorite so far. That was a lot of work, and you did a fantastic job.

    Jeanne, how wonderful that you learned to quilt and have been able to give all your grandbabies quilts. My daughter is expecting her first in September and I am still waiting for her to tell me her colors or theme. If she doesn't decide soon I am just gonna make what I want.

    They are all adorable - the quilts and the babies. I'll bet Georgia likes her quilt now. Maybe she was just having a rough day. Thanks for the show. Peggy
    Happy quilting to all of my new friends on the quilting board http://pastimesquiltdesign.blogspot.com

    You sure one talented & generous Grammy! I, too, love the pink fans. I love both the fan patterns & the 30's prints. When I was a little girl, I had a yellow fan quilt that my Grandmother made me & I loved it dearly. Just give little Georgia time... she'll come to realize what a beautiful treasure it 9& you!) are! Thanks for sharing all these beautiful quilts with us. They're all just fabulous!

    Adorable quilts and grandchildren. My grandma wasn't a sewer, but my mom was. So she made us alot when we were little. My aunt made me a baby quilt. I had it until about 7 years ago when we had our house fire. All of my children have recieved quilts from my mom and a few from other family members. I was surprised when I had my last child of how many people crocheted on the fathers side of the family. He got a couple crocheted throws. Not many sewers. I try to give all my friends quilts for their babies. I think every baby needs a quilt.
    enjoy your life...it's the only one you have!!!

    All the quilts are wonderful. You are so lucky to have so many grandbabies. I have only one who is now 7. I've already made him 4 quilts. My mom has 17 other great grandchildren. So I am kept busy. I am about 6 behind. There are now 2 more on the way. Hard to keep up when 6 are born in 1 year. I need to be able to stay home more to get them done.
