Grandma Chelle is wonderful in so many many ways. One of those ways is her love of quilting and her kind thoughtful selflessness of making and giving quilts to others. She has made each of my children a quilt and they LOVE them. I wanted to document them here just in case something tragic happened to any of them. I wish the pictures and descriptions did a better job of showing off these quilts.
Nicholas's is a bug quilt that has been hanging on his wall ever since he was a baby. When we took it down for this picture it took me a couple of days to get it hung back up. He told me he had a hard time sleeping without it because he likes to look at it before he falls asleep. The dragonfly at the bottom of the quilt has lost it's body. We still have the body (I think...I knew right where it was before we moved and now I am having a hard time picturing it's location) and just need to sew it back on. It was puffy and stuffed with fluff and Nicholas loved it a little too hard when he was too young to know better.
Estella's is a "Brainy Baby" quilt. Babies love looking at it because of all the bold geometric designs. It fits Estella's personality very well. The back is a super soft fuzzy material that she, Alexander, and Eleanor have all loved to play with when they were very small.
The Christmas after Jackson and I were married...or maybe it was the second...I can't remember for sure, she made this wall hanging for me. I think it was one of her first quilts. She cut all of those intricate pieces by hand and appliqued them on. I love it and grow to cherish it more and more the older I get.
