Crazy Eights Quilt for Parker

I found this pattern at Wish Upon A Quilt in Raleigh, NC while out shopping with Arlette and Karen a few weeks ago. Sandy Gervais of Pieces From My Heart is the pattern designer. I fell in love with it the moment I saw it hanging on the wall. The quilt shop had a sample made up and quilted and I just had to have the fabrics to make one for each of my grandchildren. I had to do some web surfing to find all of the fabrics but eventually I did.

After standing at the quilting machine the larger part of today I decided to take some time and put the first of these 2 quilts together. This one is for my 2 year old grandson Parker. I think he will really think it is cool. He is so funny these days. Heather told me that he tells everyone that I made his comforter in his bedroom. He uses the quilts I made for him when he was born to lay around in the living room watching television. Heather has told him that I made them for him so now any and all quilts are made by his mawmaw, whether I did or not. He is such a sweetie cakes!

By the way...he now calls me Mawmaw Freesha. :) (We will have to work on that pronunciation)

Love the quilt! Aren't grandkids wonderful? Mine are the same way about the quilts I make for them. They call me Grandma Chicken because of the small backyard flock we have.
