Of Course I'll Drop Everything For You....

 ....I said to my five year old grandson (who's almost six) a few days ago.  He'd asked me to sew him a volleyball quilt a long time ago, but I'd never got around to it. But, when those big brown eyes looked at me the other day and said he'd "been waiting since I was four" to get his volleyball quilt, of course I went right to work on it.

I had some blocks already sewn up from the last volleyball quilt I made, so I handed them to him and told him to design his own quilt. He loved that the blocks stuck to my wall and had a great time moving them around.

This little monkey has a tendency to get distracted and bounced out of the room more than he was in, but he got all the pieces on the wall and was really proud of himself. 

It's finished and ready for him to be wrapped up in and snuggled by all of us who love him so much.

Now, it's back to what consumes
most of my free time...
and I love it!

  11. I love the way he has designed this, thanks for sharing. I am always involving my grandkids into a project and this would be fun to add to the cookie party I host for them every year.. What a simple and loving way to make a quilt. Its fun and colorful and I love a childs eye on everything..
