Caleb's Grandma Quilt!

Grandma Denny and Aunt Jess came for a visit!  With them, they brought the long awaited Caleb Quilt.  My Mom made a duckie quilt for Emma when she was born.  True to all things "first" she zipped through it...and Emma had it soon after she was born.  Caleb...has had to wait.  
Now, no being hard on my Mom.  She created an amazing airplane on the sky with ribbon propellers and a little plane with a banner....OH, and did I mention...these quilts are HANDQUILTED! 
Around each cloud on that border...wowsers!  It's a work of art...and love!  And...
....He ADORES it...he couldn't be more tickled!
His sister's been teasing him for years with hers...and now he has his quilt!
It was worth the wait! 
BUT, note to self:  when I have grandchildren I will be machine quilting their quilts!  Just sayin'...hahaha!

That is so cute! I've never made a quilt, but if I did, I would use a machine, too.
