Since the 10th birthday quilts have all been completed, I needed to get back to the little surprise ones for my children. This one landed on the doorstep of daughter Wendy in Colorado today so guess I am safe in posting a picture now. Hope it will brighten her home and make her think of Iowa when she uses it. Last, but not least, the youngest will have to wait a bit for his, as the quilting supplies are put up for a few weeks. I am sure I will get the urge to stitch again soon!
My passion for quilts has grown from the days when I stood beside my grandmother's quilting frame and watched her tiny stitches. I have started a tradition that I make each of my grandchildren a quilt for their 10th birthday. Sometimes it is just colors they love or things they are especially fond of.
