Two Small "I" Quilts!

Last July, the grandgirls, Isabel and Ilena were playing with these blocks and having a great time arranging them into designs and shapes and playing match-up games with them. So now I've sewn them into quilt tops for them. We added pictures of the family and them, plus a colorful border. Very easy and I hope, a fun reminder of the time they spent with Grandma and Pop-Pop (Grandpa) playing with the quilt blocks. Perhaps their first experience "designing" a quilt??!!

Time spent with grandkids is so precious...just this last week-end we spent time with our grandboys to celebrate Evan's 4th BD with a party in the park where the kids did a craft and played, and best of all rode the "Sophie train." What a great day his Mom had planned out for him. He was a wonderful little host. I was so proud of him as he opened his gifts and "ohhed" and "ahhed" over each one and thanked his guests. All in all a grand day, even though all the adults were soooo tired!!!

Let quilting help you make someone smile!

Lovely quilts for the girls, and I just realized that each have the letter "I" as their first name. So very cute with the pictures, they will love them.

I'm so sorry I missed this post on the day you did it. I LOVE that you added pictures and the I's are just perfect. Absolutely perfect. Plus, when Ilena's eyes change from blue to green (we have resigned ourselves to this fact - everyone else's eyes have changed from blue to green), we will have a sweet reminder that she had blue eyes at this time.

Thanks dd2--my memory is of the fun we all had with these colorful quilt squares!
