    Rise and Shine

    My youngest daughter gifted my hubby and I with the news that we were to be grandparents. So off to my pattern and fabric stash I went. I finally settled on an old Quiltmaker pattern from 2007. I used the colors suggested (especially since she was having a boy) blues, purples, yellows, golds and neutrals. Since my daughter loves Dr. Seuss, I used a panel and Dr. Seuss fabric for the backing.

    My grandson was born this past August and hubby and I went to meet him early this month. I got to spend two weeks cuddling and spoiling my new grandson Lincoln, and visiting with my sweet daughter and son-in-law.

    Here is Lincoln's quilt.

    I love what you did! Congratulations on your grandchild too.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    Congratulations on you new grandson! My first grandchild came into my life 19 years ago this December. My mother taught me to garment sew since I was 10. But when I found out my daughter was having my first grandchild, I made my first quilt. I have darling pictures of her with her quilt and now she sews and made the quilt that is on her bed. Nothing like the love for a grandchild. I hope Lincoln loves it to pieces!

    Darling quilt. Isn’t being a grandmother just the best? My grandson loved his quilt so much he traveled with it when he was little. Now 6’ tall, almost 16 and will go anywhere with me if I let him drive. Time really does fly!��

    What a great quilt and big enough to take him well into his toddler years and his first big boy bed. Congratulations on the new grandbaby and fabulous job on the quilt!

    Sweet, Sync! It's a double sided quilt... Congrats on the grandbaby!

    I'm waiting for my first and second grandchildren to be born next Spring. My son's baby is first, in Feb... and a girl. My daughter's baby is due in April and we don't know the sex yet... but I'm pretty sure it's a boy. If it is a boy, they are thinking about naming him Lincoln too!
