Quilts for grandchildren

Evelyn made this as a wedding quilt for a grandchild (who has been married for 6 years - but who's counting!).  She thought she would like it quilted with some little circles and since the colors reminded me of the sea, I put little bubbles around the dark blue frames and some sort of kelp-like stuff in the borders.  Evelyn is a very neat and tidy piecer: the back of her tops look  as good as the front!

Sylvia makes the cutest quilts for her grandkids. She doesn't mess around with easy patterns either!  This quilt is small but has many little bitty pieces.   I love the red vintage cowboy fabric in the star centers.

Wichita recently broke a weather record for the most days over 100 degrees in one year: 52 so far this year.  That broke the record set during the 30's.  There are other parts of the country with hotter temperatures, drought, fires, floods, hurricanes etc, so I really shouldn't complain!
