    My grandson's quilt finally!!

    Well, I finally got the pictures that my daughter took of myself and Hunter making his little quilt and pillow on my new FW. This was last year in March right after I got the FW, Broke my elbow and was staying there for Dr. appts. I thought he did a great job and it was made using remnants from Hobby Lobby and Joann's. Name:  Hunter and his quilt 1.jpg

    How great.
    This photo brings memory to me when my grandson and I use to do this.
    He was always wanting to sew and we had the best time.
    Thanks for the memories.

    How wonderful for him that he has you for a DGM. So wonderful that you can pass your craft on to him.

    How special for both of you!
    This photo brought back sweet memories of teaching my grandson how to sew and piece two summers ago. He was 11 and we went on to piece some more at Christmas that year, then I finished the quilt for which he had chosen all the colors. Wish I had pictures of it all.

    Great picture and reminds me that my grandson (almost 8) likes to sew with me too. I will have to get a photo of him with me too!

    I love these types of pictures. I wish I had pics of my dearly departed grandmother teaching ME how to sew at that age. Those are some of my most favorite memories.

    thought I would try one more time to get a picture of us with the pilow and the quilt done and I finally managed to get it to upload. the other ones are too big by a hair. He sleeps with it all the time. He is now 11 yr old and in the 6th grade. one of the top students in his class.Name:  Hunter and his quilt 6.jpg

    Such sweet pictures of you both. He is very serious about doing it right. We need more quilters. Great looking pillow and quilt.

    Should have put in the post that he designed this quilt himself too. I don't think it cost me $10 total, everything was in the remnants and the crib quilt batting was too.
