Quilts for Grandson

I had the pleasure of seeing my first grandchild graduate from high school last week. All the family – parents, grandparents, and his Aunt told stories of memories (actions) of his childhood. His younger sister took great pleasure in these embarrassing stories until her Aunt reminded her that in four years it would be her turn to be embarrassed.


I have made several quilts for him (my grandson) though the years. The first item was his christening gown and then an heirloom quality quilt to match. The next quilt featured cars and trucks with yo-yos for the wheels; it was dragged on the floor for several years.


This year I made a wall hanging of Boy Scout fabric in honor of his Eagle Scout achievement.  This summer I will be busy making a bed covering long enough for those dorm beds. We are very proud of him as you can tell. Congrats to all graduates and their families.
