Quilts

My mother makes a special quilt for each of her grandkids. BubTar got his for his first birthday and KayTar got hers yesterday, although it is considered a late third birthday present. Her quilt is so full of her personality, I just love it. It has her favorite colors and favorite things, animals, letters, flowers, books, hats...all sort of good things. It turned out just right, as did BubTar's almost 5 years ago! (I can't believe he's nearly 6!) Without further ado, the quilts.

KayTar's:








BubTar's:




And a old, terrible quality photo of wee little BubTar and his quilt.



PS: KayTar saw my post and said, "My new BLANKEY! That's AWESOME!" She cracks me up. Then she added, "Look at KayTar, she's a QUEEN." Indeed.

What beautiful quilts! Munchkin has one from her gramma, and I just treasure it. I love the photos of Kaytar lounging, like a Queen, obviously :-)

Those are very special, Kyla. Thanks for sharing the pictures. It's kinda clear that Kay-Tar's in love with hers, eh?

She is a complete queen, and he is a king.

Sadly right now, a king with an ear infection.

I love the tradition of quilting. it ccarries with it such a history of a women's round circle. Much like what we are doing. making a quilt. Our fabric words.
