The quilts I've been working on lately are for my great nephews. Since their mom posted photos on Facebook, I don't feel too guilty about posting one here. She titled the photos of Carson, "My little turkey growing up." That's how I got my title. :-)
The photo of Carson and Seth on the left is from her Facebook. Aren't they is just adorable and fun?
Some of the fabrics on the quilts are from my mom's stash. Before her death in November she gave me many of the fabrics that she had; later, my dad asked me to help clean the room where she kept her sewing. He didn't care what happened to some of the stuff just as long as we cleaned. I couldn't toss all that fabric and the notions, patterns, etc. Eventually almost all of it found its way to my studio.

Do you suppose that two little boys who will likely not remember their great-grandmother will grow up to appreciate quilts made with her fabric? What do you suppose their mom, who was very close to her grandmother, will say? I just hope she allows them to play and love the quilts the way grandma would have liked? She can still care for them and have the quilts when they are grown men, don't you think?
