Quilts & Swimming Party

There is nothing like a swimming party to celebrate the Grandchildren's birthdays!
Here brother is blowing out his candles. His birthday was last month but just now having the party. Happy Birthday Brother!
My little "Angel" is celebrating her birthday about a week ahead of time!
Happy Birthday Angel!
This is my youngest grand baby! Look at him swim!
"Little D" thinks he is the stuff!
And he is!
Remember a couple of posts back when I showed you that "Sweet Teen" (my oldest granddaughter) was making a quilt for her little brothers birthday? Look how she packaged this up! She even made a pillow to go with it. I am impressed.

Look what she has done for her little sisters birthday! Is it another quilt & pillow?
Yes, she worked up until the time to come to the swimming party on Angels quilt and pillow.
She said it took her 3 days to get this one done. Oh I am so proud of her. But I know someone that is prouder. I just know that Granny is looking down on her smiling.
Here is Brother with his pillow.
He looks wet and cold!
He is proud of this quilt!
I had to get a picture of "Sweet Teen" with the quilt also!

Angel loves her quilt and pillow too!

This quilt is so pretty. It is pinks and browns.
I helped "Sweet Teen" cut out the fabric for this and then she took it home and did the whole thing herself. Can you tell I am a proud Gran?

Darling grandbabies Val. I think I need to take lessons from sweet teen. She did a fabulous job on both the quilts. Those little ones will treasure their quilts forever. Granny is no doubt telling all the angels in heaven "that's my great grandaughter that made those quilts".

Your "sweet teen" granddaughter is amazing!!! I can understand why you'd be so proud!

What love Sweet Teen has for her brother and sister! What great talent she has a sewing! I am so very proud of her. They are all so beautiful, Loved seeing Little D in the pool, he looks like he is enjoying it so much.
Happy birthday Angel and Brother!

The kiddos are so cute...and I know you are so proud of all of them. Amazing work by Tween on the quilts and pillows...that sewing talent is being carried thru the genes it appears.

Have a great week!

Oh goodness all your grand angels are just so cute and awesome!SWT TEEN is a wonderful quilter in the making for sure! Maybe a Summer Quilt Camp at a local quilt shop would be right up her ally!
Yes I am betting Granny would be so very proud of you both!
