What are you most proud of? My Canadian grandchildren were thrilled to receive them and immediately crawled into a chair to try them out. Each quilt has a special pocket on the back, one with a button flap and the other just plain, Special for storing small toys in, pockets are important--so I was told.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? As hard as you try I bet you can not use up all of your scraps. They just have a way of multiplying. The more you use the more you create. I sure gave it a try.

they are beautiful!! and pockets are super important! and I know what you mean about scraps, I find stuffed toys are a bit like that too, I'm sure they are breeding in my house :)

A lady with a heart like mine. I just love all the bright and bold colors. Such an eye grabber. I really hope your family and friends appreciate the beautiful gifts you make for them. As a quilter, we know the time and cost involved in making these gifts. But the love you put into it shines thru and thru.

Thanks for all your positive comments. I've made over 100 quilts and only people who appreciate my quilts receive them. I do admit giving an ugly one to someone who didn't care.LOL
