I do love how your Doctor Who project is turning out. What a lucky girl!

Many years ago, my grandma made quilts for everyone in the family for Christmas. All of her kids and grandkids received one. Each one was a nine patch quilt and mine is something I treasure to this day.

What a legacy from your grandmother. I don't have any grandchildren but I do have 7 nieces and 4 nephews; 17 great nieces and nephews and 7 great-great nieces and nephews (I think). I'll start with the nieces and nephews this year and see how that goes - it will take a while to get those done.

That Doctor Who project looks amazing!

That's so sweet to make quilts for all your nieces/nephews.. I have quilts from three family members (mom, aunt, grandma) and love them all to bits - it's more special than making something for myself.

I wish I had some of my grandmother's crochet work. When she died her children split up her doilies and such. My mother had already died, so none came to our branch.

Oh that's too bad! Maybe you could let them know that if anyone has something they don't want any more, that you'd love to have some of her work.

The Doctor Who quilt is looking pretty awesome...she'll love it!

That's a lot of quilts to make! But as quickly as you work you'll be able to get them done. :) What a treasure they'll all have.

I have a head start with the 28 quilt tops I have finished but not quilted. It will be a matter of who gets which one.

Your Dr who quilt looks great, I love the backing fabric you got for it, totally appropriate.

The who quilt top is so cute! Any Who fan would love it.

I started only doing quilts for baby gifts (because SMALLER) and have only actually given ONE to an adult (Greg's Get Well Quilt). I would eventually like to give each member of the family one, since there aren't THAT many of us, I think I can manage it. I am sure eventually you can get all the ones done you want to get done. So my brother's will probably be the only one he gets. I am saving them for milestones like births, weddings, milestone birthdays, etc, to give myself time to get them done. Hubby's 50th bday and my sister's 60th birthday are BOTH in 2017, so they are on my list for this year.

I am SOOOOO scared to do this. The couple of small quilts I've tried to quilt turned out okay but I was not really happy with them. But I won't get better at it if I don't practice. Right???

Absolutely, and we are our own toughest critics, so practice practice practice. Maybe practice quilter on some smaller ones you have done already, if you have some, and then donate them to a charity or save them to have on hand when loved ones have bundles of joy. I am seriously considering reworking the wine themed quilt I top I made for my niece's wedding that never got finished, adding a border and using it for my sister's 50th. I already have backing fabric and batting end everything I need so why start from scratch if it's something I think she'll like?
