    This is a quilt I made for a shower gift. I am including red plates, silverware and wine glasses in a basket.

    The other picture is Violet and Grandpa. They love playing together on the floor.

    I like the quilt. The appliqued seeds are a great touch! The picture of Violet and her granfather is sweet.

    I love your quilt, so much so I may copy it for a summer table topper. Thanks for the great idea. If that's ok with you.

    That is a darling quilt. I love the seeds. They are the perfect touch. Paired with the plates and glasses it is the perfect gift. Great job. I love the pic of grandpa and grand daughter playing.

    I love your quilt. Great idea. I give quilts that I call 'picnic' quilts.
    Nice looking, happy family.

    Sure you can copy it! I have had it in my done pile for several years but it needed to be quilted and this wedding shower gave me a reason to get it done!
