Avraham Mordechai Birthday Quilt

Today is Purim.  Three years ago today our little Avi was born.  When each of my grandchildren reach 3 years of age they get a birthday quilt for a regular size bed.
I made the rail fence and of course I ran out of one of the fabrics, so you'll notice a different design on the top and bottom.  It's amazing to me that my grandchildren all under the age of 11 notice the patterns, fabric, and the way they are quilted.  Everyone has a comment and most are positive.  The boys get their first hair cut on their 3rd birthday also, so off goes the long hair.  No more pony tails.


  1. Etty, this is really beautiful. And I love the different borders. They really make it special.

  2. Very clever the way you lengthened this quilt. And having a big-kid quilt is important to every child--and more so that it comes from grandmother!
