Sorry - just found this posting. The paints I used are fabric paints and I sent for them from Dharma Trading Co. that you can find on line. They are called Setacolor/light fabrics. Not many stores carry fabric paint

This is a memory your grandson will keep. He will think of her every time he looks at this quilt. Well done!

Yes, I agree - my grandson will always remember his great grandmother when he looks at his quilt. He has always been very kind to her.

Yes, you are right - this great grandson does have a special relationship with his almost 102 year old Great Grandmother. Thanks for your comment
