Ah, Ha!! I figured it out.  Here are the pictures of G's quilt.  I deleted the other post with all of my wisdom about quilting with kids.....just make a quilt with your kids, okay??  It is as simple as cutting some blocks , sewing them in long strips, sewing those strips together, layering it like an Oreo cookie with some batting and a back piece of fabric and sewing them together.  This is the simplified version, but there are so many books out there, go for it!!!

Happy Sewing!!


  1. Beautifully done! Tell G he did a fabulous job. Is there a particular purpose for this quilt?

  2. Hi Bernice!!!! He will be so thrilled you saw his quilt! This is, according to G, who went in to great detail to describe exactly what the purpose was.....a "watch TV, football games, and movies, especially during Winter, kind of quilt". Perfect, I think. He couldn't resist the manly armed services fabric. P is doing one as well, his fabric is a salute to firetrucks, ambulances, motorcycles....anything cool and fast.

    Nice talking the other day, I'm so glad you called!!!

  3. This is great! You really should get him quilting for the troops.


  4. Way to go G!!! I love it!
