Blessings of the season

Now is the time that we share love and wish for joy throughout the coming year to all.One of the ways I'm doing this is by making an "Can you find?" quilt for my 3 year old grandson. 
Hopefully he will want to play the game of learning to read the words,  finding the picture, color or perhaps a letter as he is snuggled under his new cover.


Below is a close up of one section. I included his name and in other parts the name of his parents, sisters, grandma and grandpa. Yes, I've having fun!


Blessings of the season to all!!

FABULOUS!!! WOW!! The images look hand painted on fabric - are they? Did you paint them? Inquiring minds want to know!

Happy holidays and thanks for the many thoughtful comments you left for me over 2010. I look forward to our art journey together, online, in 2011. Or if you ever come to NYC....

What impresses me is how meticulous and precise you are. Your quilt (which is incredible) is so beautifully executed and your drawings (for the most part) are all quite structured. And I mean "structured" in a good way. You have a delightful combination of both left-brain organization and right-brain artistry. I wish I had more of that left-brain stuff. Maybe then I wouldn't walk with such a starboard list! Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays/Feliz Navidad/Happy Solstice! --Carol Leigh

This is so fantastic! I love the idea of using the quilt for learning and I can picture mom putting her son to bed, playing little games.

Merry Christmas to you Sandra, and hope you have a fabulous 2011!
