I made this quilt for one of my Best Friends.
For the Mother of my Granddaughter's Daddy.
My Daughter's Mother-in-Law.

Made, primarily of pink and white flannel, this quilt also contains
twenty I-Spy blocks.

What would a quilt with these two Grandmas be if it did not include chocolate?

Daddy teaches choir and composes music....

And here we are: Two Grandma's a Daughter and a Granddaughter.

 It's so much fun to be a Grandma!
All the plans of things to do, projects to make, books to read - and so I made
road signs for in the nursery. . . to important places that will need to be investigated.

 Machine pieced.
Machine quilted at home on my Kenmore.
Pink minky on the back (It is SO soft!)

Vote today!
This quilt just makes me smile.
I like pink.
I like babies.
I am glad to give this quilt to Grandma, 
my sister
my friend.
