I let my Mom think all I made her for Christmas was a bookmark... but her's & Jim's real gift was this Grandchildren's Quilt!
I couldn't make the quilt and have it ready to give when I went to Texas and divied out homemade gifts to everyone because little Ryder had to be on it!
Ever since Mom & I saw Stepmom (with Julia Roberts and Susan Sarandon), I've wanted to make a quilt of photos. Christmas 2008 I received a sewing machine from my mom and I promised her I'd make a quilt of her grandkids for her, well, sorry it took me a year but now all SEVEN of your grandkids are on it!
I mailed it to Michigan where Mom & Jim are spending Christmas (and the next few months) together. Christmas Day I got the tear-filled call thanking me for the treasured item, I'm so glad it made it in time, it was a bit of a rush job, but I think it turned out nicely!
I love making and giving gifts from the heart that are so perfectly fit for the receiver!
