Grand kid Quilts

I received a phone call from my daughter asking if I could move London's quilt up the queue. Jordan received her big girl quilt for her birthday in March and Robi his big boy quilt in May. London's birthday is not until November, for a four year old that is a long time away. Currently the two girls are in bunk beds and whether by design or accident Jordan's quilt slides down the side of her upper bunk. London then grabs the end and there is war. My daughter has had enough and asked that I please get London's done.

I saw London on Saturday and she looks at me and asks if her quilt is done. No, I respond, I am here watching you dance. I can see she will be an unrelenting task master. I can feel the whip.

Of course it is all Nanny's fault as these were to have been Christmas quilts in 2017 which would have solved all the problems, sigh.

The garden is looking good. The deer have left the base of the peas so not sure if they will flower. Not sure I will get any fresh garden peas this year. Too bad as they are my favourite!! I remember my grandmother, sitting in an Adirondack chair in her backyard, wearing a button down the front house dress, shelling peas. It is one of my special memories.

We did get strawberries as Martin built a cage around them. Yeah Martin!!

Twin Boy Quilts

These are the best quilts ever! Hungry Caterpillar Fabric and a pattern from Cluck Cluck Sew! Fabulous! I would like to take credit but I just sewed the seams.

 My daughters friend had twin boys so the quilts are similar and only the backing is different.
 I used flannel on the back to make it extra cozy.

So cute! I am very happy with this finish!
