We all know how expensive Christmas giving can be. My husband and I live on a disability check. He fell and broke his back 3 years ago, and I stay home and take care of him. We had to change the way we live, only necessities now. But I have grandchildren that need Christmas gifts. I decided to make each one a quilt that reflects their own interests, so I started digging in the closet for scrap fabrics. (I sew.)
I am sure those quilts will be their most cherished Christmas present ever!! I wish I knew how to sew...just lovely!!
I think it is gorgeous! If i send a picture of my cats, will you make me one? Of course, I'll pay!
Your quilt is beautiful and I am sure will become a family heirloom
Wow! Not only is it practical and special, but you are teaching your grandchildren the true meaning of making something for them to keep for a lifetime!
The quilts are so beautiful!! Are you sure I am not your grandchild as well:)
What a wonderful gift idea!! We have done the same for my neices one holiday and then a group of friends got together and made a patchwork quilt using scraps I've received, plus some we all chipped in to buy for a baby quilt for a dear family we were all friends of. Each time we visit, we see that quilt in a prominent place and the baby loves it as well!! An added plus was getting together and sewing in shifts/diff days to accomplish such a wonderful gift!! P.S. I just love the cat!! Frual Freida
KUDOS to you. Nothing warms the heart more than a gift of love made with love.
God Bless you, You have given your grandchildren something so special I have quilts from my Mother & Grandmother who are both in Heaven now but I treasure them just because they made them with all their love. Nothing says "I love you" more than a homemade gift they are the best.
P.S. your quilt is beautiful!
I to am a lover of quilts. I made my granddaughters a quilt apiece and they loved them. They were made out of scraps but were pretty. Your quilt is lovely and your grandchildren are very lucky to get them as a gift. I do hope you and your husband have peaceful holidays with your family. May God Bless you.
What a treasure. "The Cat" is beautiful.
That blanket is amazing! You are truly gifted in your sewing!
