I don't know how I got old enough to be a great grandmother but come April I will be. So I made a quilt and diaper bag. I've used this fabric before and the young ones seem to like it!
Adorable. Love the diaper bag too.

That is lovely. Congratulations!
Our lives are like quilts - bits and pieces, joy and sorrow, stitched with love.
I love it! The diaper bag is very nice too! Good Work Grandma!
Love the quilt and bag. Congratulations GGM!!!
l would be unstopable IF l could get started!!!
Cute as can be! And I also wonder how we got old enough to be GGMs! My first 2 were born in November
Lucky baby! The parents are also lucky to have you as well. Beautiful gifts.
That is so pretty. Can I ask where you got the pattern for the diaper bag? I finished up some burp cloths today and was trying to think of something else to make besides a quilt.
too cute, and I hope I live long enough to be a GGM...I got such a late start with my son...Congratulations...great gifts!

Very nice. I have a new grand baby coming next month. It's number 6 and I'm only 29.
What a nice set! Your quilt is just so sweet. I like the way the black sets off your main fabric - and the way you alternated the stripe fabric blocks. Nice work!
Is this that puffy/ biscuit style of quilt or is it just the lighting that makes it look so fluffy-licious?This message has been edited. Last edited by: jeepdarla,
Darling!! Love your fabric choices!
Very nice. Love the puff quilt. I agree the black really does set the other colors off.
I never wonder how I got to be old enough to be a GGM; I wonder how the kids got old enough to make me one!
Jeepdarla said exactly what I was going to say! Both the quilt and bag are wonderful.
jeepdarla, yes it is a "puffy" quilt. I started making them for family and friends about 20 years ago.
bunnybcb, the pattern was a mccalls, but I would not recommend it. This is the second one, I did most of it over "my" way. I would suggest a big tote pattern, use fusible fleece in both the outer and inner pieces for stability.
Sandy why would you not recommend it? Is it the instructions, size or design?
love it very cool.
bunny, yes, yes, and yes! It had pockets all around the outside with a flap that requires 2 zippers. (well I did that but could see no reason for the flap?? it just covered the front pockets,called for another zipper in the top to close, well this made it difficult to get into the bag.) Bag seems too tall. And lastly I find sewing patterns much harder to understand than quilt type patterns. Infact I just measured the pattern peices I was going to use in the second try and cut them "quilt style".This message has been edited. Last edited by: Sandy O !,
Very cute - congratulations
Thanks Sandy for the info. I've been sewing with patterns for years and will admit some of them are hard for me to understand. I did look this pattern up online and it does look like a tall box. Think I'll forego this one.
