I read this quote the other day that went like this... "It's a magical moment...when a quilt becomes a blankie". It immediately made me thing of my granddaughters and their quilts I have made for them. Those quilts sure have a lot of love in them, and that is what you hope... they remember and feel, when they are wrapped up inside of them. I think of this sweet photo of my second granddaughter Jenny, with her quilt I made her when she was born. Yes, quilts are a way to tell someone that you really love them. I am so excited that my neighbors got me exciting about learning to quilt 8 years ago, it has become a very healing art for me.

Now, not only do I make baby quilts... but I also make quilts for my granddaughters baby dolls, animals, monsters or anything else! But when I saw that my oldest granddaughter had used one of the doll blankies I made for her, on her pet rock, I had to laugh.:) Oh well, like the tag says... My Nana made it for me! I guess as long as it brings some peace and quiet for her Mom, fun for her and a warm place for her favorite rock to sleep...how can I complain? :)
