I am back from Charleston, SC. I tried to post to the blog on the ipad from there, and the interface was just too clunky. Friend Giovanna McCarthy told me there was an app for “WordPress,” so I downloaded that a few days ago, but have not yet tried it out. I LOVE the ipad. It’s so easy and light when traveling. So, the blog below was written on April 23.

The Kiddos’ Quilts in Charleston
I make them.
Than most of them I give away.
The grandchildren have quite a few of them. There were the baby quilts. Then the “big bed” quilts. And, in a few cases, a wall quilt.
Imagine my delight to see some of the quilts in use in a bedroom that can sleep four of the kiddos in bunks, freeing up a bedroom for a guest–like me!
I love both of those wall quilts and had such fun making them. Both came from now-famous patterns. The one on the left is called “Over By the Pond” if I’m not mistaken. The “jar” block is pretty standard, but I’m sure I bought this pattern as a kit that came with the buggy fabrics. I wanted my kiddos to be deeply connected to nature, and I love and am fascinated with bugs.
The little blue churn dash quilt was made for my first grandchild, Bowen. It has some Maine blueberry fabrics in it.
The red-bound quilt was also Bowen’s, his “big bed” quilt. All these children have special quilts, not just Bowen.
Here’s a better view of “Over By The Pond.”
