Tumbling blocks and Dragonflies

One of the great joys in life is welcoming grandchildren into your life.  In them you can see the flickers of all those around them.  It’s miraculous to watch your own children grow, but watching the next generation simply takes your breath away.  Creating  a new quilt offers the chance to focus on that new life and all of its possibilities.
