When she came for Thanksgiving this year, she came bearing gifts, Tess and Jujube's quilts.
This one is Jujube's, complete with matching throw pillow! I think Grammy got sick of looking at the Asian Pezz people black fabric that I picked out, but she never let on. I love the bright colors, but it's still kinda macho-ish for a studly boy like Jujube.
And this is Tess's quilt. The main fabric is so retro and so sweet!
It's a wonderful tradition, and as the kiddos grow, and their quilt shows the effects of years of love, the kiddos start to appreciate them. 16 years later, Sunny's quilt is quite tattered around the edges. That's a lot of lovin'. Hopefully I will have many years yet before I will have to make a quilt for my grandbaby. Cause I don't know nothin' bout quilting!
From the bottom up are each of their quilts double folded to see the fabrics better, Sunny's in bold colors with turquoise and hot pink, Livy's in muted tones of reds and beiges 'cause I was probalby sick on the bold colors, Patch's with a sun and moon theme cause it was all about "themes" in the late 90's, Boo's with cowboys and Indians, Jude's and lastly Tess's.
Thank you, Grammy!
