Today is my oldest grandson Patrick's feast day!  Happy St. Patrick's Day!  The very first member of my father's family to come to America was named Patrick.  It pleases me so to have a family namesake:)

The quilt is complete and delivered.  I so wanted to take pictures with he children when they saw it, but my camera was acting weird.  I even had difficulty uploading these pictures.  This is not the time for my camera to die on me.  Not in the budget!

They loved the quilt though.  The class is called the Owls, so it was appropriate to back it in that specific fabric.  I hand tied it at each intersection and then used a pin stitch to attach the backing.

This will go in the school auction in a few weeks.  I especially want to thank my daughter Julia for giving me the opportunity to work so closely with Patrick's class.  I have tried to be very careful to not step on toes or interfere.   I think we did it!:))


  1. oh that's so nice!!! I am glad!!! hope the camera gets better! (((hugs)))

  2. Beautiful! Isn't it wonderful to continue using your gifts as you re-invent mother! Hugs! Going to be tough to have just one parent take home all these priceless memories. Should be a top winner in the auction!
