I've felt bad that our youngest grandson didn't get a crib quilt when he was born, even though his brother did ("In the Jungle" crib quilt). Poor little guy is 2 1/2 years old already.
And then suddenly, we also had a great-grandson AND have TWO more grandchildren on the way. I'm four quilts behind.
I've resolved to set this to right. On my recent trip to visit several of the grandchildren, my youngest daughter took me to the two quilt shops in her town. I never turn down an offer to go to a quilt shop.
My visit coincided with National Quilting Day, so I borrowed Melissa's rotary cutter and sewing machine. Melissa kept me company as she worked on other projects, and wound bobbins for me and threaded needles and fixed things that didn't work right for me, which was very appreciated.
