CELEBRATION TIME!!! Seven years ago when my two oldest granddaughters were two, a long time friend made some embroidered doll blocks for them and told them that their Nana could make them a quilt out of them.
Patsy had just gotten a new embroidery sewing machine and she just has grandSONS, so was anxious to try the cute "Sue's Cousins" designs. Well, then the ball was in my park and I used the excuse for a while of finding the perfect pattern. Then I used the excuse of finding the perfect fabrics. So I finally decided if I was going to do it while they could still use them, I'd better get in gear. So this year I finished them.
I then had another problem, because I had another granddaughter born later. So I decided to make her one too. Well, I do have a nice embroidery/sewing machine now, but didn't have the designs in the right format, so Patsy made the blocks again for Lyndey and I got busy and made hers too.
Their birthdays are within a month of each other, and the past weekend, we celebrated two of them. So I decided to give them all at the same time.
Lyndey, the youngest, says "Paige got the prettiest--PINK!" I knew that might be a problem, they all love pink. Patsy had chosen the red for Kayley and I knew Paige loved pink, and Lyndey likes purple too, so I went with that. I wanted them to be the same but different colors.
My daughter had taken photos of me and each granddaughter at Easter so I used them on my label, so when I'm long gone they won't forget me!!
The girls were much much more excited with the toys they received, but someday I know they will appreciate the quilts and know that their Nana loved them so much!
