    Beautiful quilt and a wonderful story. Quilts are great for tying the generations together and making memories. It's like a warm hug from those who made it.

    My little 6 yr old GD is sitting on my lap and she loves the butterflies she wanted me to tell you that your quilt is beautiful. Thank you for sharing this with us. Lynn and Avery

    You'll probably have to cut/paste for the links. When they are in the body of the text it works, but now I've discovered they don't copy in photo headers!

    Beautiful quilt and story, I'm sure your DGD will truly teasure it and the time spent with her Gram.

    I like the idea of making the grands a quilt for their 6th B-day, because you have an idea of the things THEY like and the colors THEY like. When we make baby quilts it is either what we like or what the mom likes, so this is a great idea. :thumbup:
