Volume 11, 
100 Designer Blocks!


I am giving away 10 different individual patterns as well as a copy of Volume 11.  In order to enter my giveaway,

  1. I am not a grandma, but I think my advice to you is to be there a 100% when you are around your grandchild.

  2. I have 3 Grandsons now. Just love them, enjoy them and never offer advice to their parents if you want to keep coming around. So far that's worked for me.

    ReplyDelete
  3. I am not a grandma but my sister has 7 grandchildren. This is what I know: receiving blankets and burp cloths are always welcome. That and lots of babysitting.

    ReplyDelete
  4. I have two grandkids. Being a grandmother is more fun than being a parent. All the play and less of the worry.
    I am daycare Grandma for the 2 year old and I love seeing her in the morning, and to be honest, I love seeing her go home in the evening.

  5. I'm not a grandma yet but my advice would be to have fun together!!

    ReplyDelete
  6. I am not a grandma yet but I enjoyed that my Mam had time with our kiddos. They even made holiday trips (and day trips) with them and the kids still talk about these memories.

    ReplyDelete
  7. I'm not a grandma, still hoping, but my advice would be deep breaths and lots of laughter, that should get you through anything.

    ReplyDelete
  8. I'm a grammy twice over. My best advice is to wait until advice is asked for before giving it. And enjoy every moment!

    ReplyDelete
  9. I'm a long ways from being a grandma--but as a mother my advice is to be supportive, but don't tell your kids what to do unless they ask!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Grandma, you're allowed to permit your grandchildren to do things you would never have allowed your children to do; you're allowed to spoil them rotten! Actually I find that very difficult myself; I guess old habits die hard! But I say "No!" to them much less than I did to their parents!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Being a grandma is a great blessing! Just enjoy.

    ReplyDelete
  12. No experience here...yet! I would say keep your mouth shut (unless asked) and give great presents!

  13. I love being a grandma! Just be yourself and give lots of hugs and kisses. Thanks for a chance to win.

  14. I save up all the stickers that come in the mail with mailing labels from charities, etc., as well as the free notepads and other office-y things and send them to my granddaughter. She's loved to "play office" since she was about 3. Being a long-distance grandma isn't as much fun, but Skype and Facetime help a lot.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Oh, I love being a Grandma. I'm in NC and they are in AZ, but that doesn't stop me from loving them. We Skype, I fly out to get them and bring them back to NC, then take them home again. Just love them, and let them feel the love and the joy they bring to your life. There is nothing better.

  16. I have four grandsons and one granddaughter. I have two more grandsons on the way. One in August and one in September. I was hoping for another granddaughter but I am happy with the boys too. I love to cuddle with them and try to take special interest in whatever it is that they are interested in. It gives you special time and they love that you like what they like. They each have a very special place in my heart. Making them quilts are fun too.Thanks for the chance to win. Lisa

  19. Not a grandma, but would just say to enjoy them while they are little. As you know children grow up way too fast.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I am a grandma of 9 and great grandmother to 4. I tend to spoil them rotten then send them home to their parents. Not really. I play with all the great grand children and we have art and sewing classes even though they are small. We have a lot of fun together.

  55. I'm Grammy to two grand daughters and 2 grandsons so far. The best advice I would give is to love and spoil them as much as possible without alienating their parents (you will get more opportunities that way).

    ReplyDelete
  56. Oh how wonderful for you - Congratulations! My first 2 grandbabies (I have 7 now) were born 6 days apart, it seems like just yesterday - they'll be graduating from high school this year and off to college! Soooooo - you have to squeeeeeeeeeze them and love love love them and play with them 'cause the time goes by so quickly that they won't be babies for very long!

  57. I have 2 granddaughters & 2 grandsons. We have sung the song "You Are My Sunshine" since day one. Now at the ages of 16, 11, & 10,we love to sing it and have a good time. They are never too old to have fun with Grandma. Make the most of each & every visit, they grow up much too fast.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Congrats for your granbabies!!!!, I'm not even a mom, but I could make to both their first and special quilt..., as well show them your love for quilting, and teach them, no matter the gender, it's a special memory they will remind forever!!!!

  60. What a block! It reminds me of Snail Trails block. Love the colors. Grandmotherhood is just wonderful! We just had our 3rd grandchild and are going next month to visit her in Italy. What fun that will be. I only wish they were closer so we could see her more often. Lots of pictures help when they are so far away. Enjoy each wet kiss...they are just precious!

  64. Oh my gosh!! You are going to love being a grandma. I have 8 grandsons from 19 to 6. They are all so different. My advice, never give up a chance to babysit. Give those parents a break. Love em, spoil em cos that's what grannies do.

    ReplyDelete
  65. It really depends on what the kid wants Grandma to be.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Grandmas always have fun ideas that mom wouldn't really want to do herself :) - from a mom

    ReplyDelete
  67. Congratulations! Grandmas get all the fun and none of the headaches...right? Grandmas tend to spoil the grand kids and let them do things that the parents don't approve of. Or so I hear.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Congratulations! I have 8 grandchildren and every one of them is unique. Hold them, hug them, have fun with them. If they live far away, make sure they have some pictures of you so they will remember who you are. Talk on the phone with them...sometimes the conversations are a little tricky, but fun none the less.

    ReplyDelete
  69. I'm not a grandma, but what I loved best about both of mine were how much fun they were to be with and how much attention they lavished on me. Thanks for the chance to win!

  72. Grandma's are wonderful, I am not one yet but I loved my Grandma. She was a wonderful lady, I use to hang out with her in her sewing room and help her and play with all her notions while she sewed. I always got treats and she made the best banana pancakes for breakfast.

I am not a grandma yet our oldest is getting married May 31st , 2015 and our youngest does not plan on ever getting married. so we will see what happens. but my mom loved all of her grandbabies she always had time for them and let them know that she loved them for who they were unconditionally but she was grandma and there was no playing around with rules and such for this she was respected and loved in turn. she has been gone now for 3 years and all the grandkids still love her bunches, no one talks bad about grandma around them. she instilled in her grandbabies respect, love for others and the love of Jesus

  76. I am not a grandma yet but hopeful. If it doesn't happen I'm ok with that. My advice would be don't be afraid to set boundaries and have your own set of rules early on for your grandchildren. Children learn from all different sources and will respect accordingly. Most of all have fun!

    ReplyDelete
  77. Congrats on becoming a Grandma, it is amazing how much love you will feel for those little ones. I am just a new Grandma and am learning all about it. I plan to play, do crafts, garden, and go exploring etc when she is older. Thanks for the giveaway of your patterns, and love QM 100 blocks

    ReplyDelete
  78. Take every opportunity you get to make memories with them. It is amazing what little things they keep as a memory

  79. I will never be a grandma, but I enjoyed being a grand-daughter very much. Congratulations! I'm sure your do fine.

  80. How exciting to be a first time Grandma! I don't have any grandchildren {yet!}, but one of the things I loved to do with my Grandma was going out to lunch with her one-to-one. It always made me feel so special :o) Thank you so much for hosting an opportunity to win a Volume 11 issue!

    ReplyDelete
  81. I'm not a grandma and probably never will be but using my dear sister as the example of a perfect grandma, I would say first unconditional love. No matter what happens, love them anyway and let them know it! Also, make sure you're giving them your undivided attention. At home, they probably won't be getting it as much especially if there are going to be more siblings in the future and if both parents work. Even if you sit and do nothing. I spend time with my grown son a lot and I'll just watch him play video games. I've learned so much about him through that activity... how he problem solves and what catches his eye and how fast he can read and type. LOL I wish I had done that as he was growing up. I tried a few times but with work, I never had the time that I have now. Time and love are probably two of the most important things a person can do for another person whether it be on the phone, in a text, email, or in person. Stay in touch with your grandchildren as they get older and keep up to date on the latest things... you won't regret it! Plus, it's always great to learn something new!! LOL Enjoy!!!

  82. Not a grandma yet, but my children have two wonderful grandmothers who support them in all of their varied activites. Also, I always love when they give my children books AND read to them, it encourages a love of reading.

    ReplyDelete
  83. Being a grandma is the greatest. I have four grandchildren and love them to bits.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Being a grandma is so wonderful. I would keep a journal of their fun sayings. When I was with my granddaughter, I would send a note home with her about the funny things she said or did. I wish I had written them for myself too.

    ReplyDelete
  85. See them as often as you can and give them lot of hugs.

    ReplyDelete
  86. I'm not a grandma but I saw both my grandmothers frequently when I was a kid. Other than loving them like crazy, I think spending time with them is a wonderful thing grandmas can do for grandchildren. And of course making quilts for them is awesome too!

    ReplyDelete
  87. I am a grandma to four, 3 girls and one lone boy. the best advice now that they are older is be available to listen whenever they feel the need to talk. My oldest is now 13 and having a close relationship allows her to feel comfortable telling me things she won't tell her parents! Now passing the girls some of my craft knowledge but hope grandson will at least learn to sew on a button. ale3002000@yahoo.com

    ReplyDelete
  88. Spoil them as much as you can....let your kids do the parenting (it will infuriate them that you break every rule you enforced when they were growing up LOL). Respect your kids choices in how they parent....as different from yours as they may be, as long as they are safe. Keep in contact with your grandkids, not just your kids. When they are old enough, as to speak to them when you call. Mail them cards & packages, just because. Read to them. Play with them. Cuddle with them. Love them forever. Spend time with them. Be patient with them. Teach them, LISTEN to them. Watch them discover the world on their own terms, feel free to provide any opportunity to expose them to new things. OFFER to take them, don't just take them when asked. When you are with them, be WITH them, not preoccupied with something else. When making pie....always have a little extra crust that you can make a cinnamon/sugar twist with, and when making cookies, always leave a few chips in the bag (thank you Grandma Smith, it wasn't unnoticed). No matter how important the project, let them help...you can always undo it if need be, but they will remember that forever! (My grandmother used to decorate wedding cakes, and she'd let us help her make the roses...I'm pretty sure those never saw the light of day, but we all felt a million feet tall and remember it 40 years later...). Hug and kiss them, don't ever miss an opportunity to spend time with them. The laundry, shopping and quilting can all wait.

  92. I'm a recent first-time grandma. Spoil them, but also make sure you have as many traditions as you can share with them.

    ReplyDelete
  93. I am not a grandma, but the times I remember best with my grandmas are the simple things, like playing games and making cookies.

    I am the grandma of 10. I hope your grandchild is closer to you than ours have been. The closest was a 12 hr. drive and the others were 6 days drive. Just be loving and encouraging, and only offer advise when asked for it.

    ReplyDelete
  99. Teach them something special...my grandmother taught me how to bake bread...Every time I make it I can feel her by my side.

    ReplyDelete
  100. I love being a grandma, we learn much more as we get older and you just enjoy him or her, give them lots of love and see the world again, through their eyes. For me it is teaching him about the outdoors, since his parents are more indoor types and he loves to go exploring with grandma.

    Debbie

    ReplyDelete
  101. Not a grandma yet, but I would say just spend time with the grandkids. We would stay at our grandparents' house for a few days at a time and just spend time with them. We'd bake cookies, work in the garden, even clean house. Those are the best memories!

    ReplyDelete
  102. I would say, just relax and enjoy them--they grow up fast!

    ReplyDelete
  103. Let them play in the kitchen and in the sewing room with you! Whatever you teach them, whenever they do it in the future, they will be reminded of you and the time they got to spend with you! I remember my grandmother used to make cutout Christmas cookies and gingerbread men and send them to us every Christmas...every time I see/make/eat one, I think of her and the special way she showed her love for us!!

    ReplyDelete
  104. Read to your grandchildren, even when they are babies! They love to hear your voice and they will also learn to love books! Get out board books and let them chew on the corners...it gets books into their hands!

    ReplyDelete
  105. A grandma is the one that you can always go to with anything! Comfort and treats!

    ReplyDelete
  106. Let the parents be the disciplinarians. You be the fun one!

    ReplyDelete
  107. Be there for your kids. Don't be pushy. Ask them how they would like you to help them as they get used to taking care of a newborn. Love them, show them, teach not criticize. I always wanted to know lots of ways that other parents do things, and then I can figure out what works best for me.

  109. I am not a grandma but my advice would be to build a relationship with your grandkids so they are comfortable talking to you about anything. As they get older tlhey will want to spend time with you if they know that you are there for them and want to be with them. Congratulations on becoming a grandmother!

  111. Give them books and read to them. Sew for them. I have made an assortment of lightweight flannel blankets for my two granddaughters as well as some quilts, pillowcases, tote bags, and headbands. I enjoy making them things and they enjoy receiving pretty gifts. I give them things at random times rather than wait for birthdays or holidays. -- soparkaveataoldotcom

  117. I have three young grandsons and now a granddaughter. My advice is be sure to get your picture taken with each child every time you see them. Life goes by too fast so cherish each moment.

    ReplyDelete
  118. I just became a first-time grandma. just have lots of fun. They seem to grow faster than your own kids.

    ReplyDelete
  119. You are lucky to have two close in age; try to make sure they see each other and get along.
    Be ready to intercede on their behalf always. Be their advocate, let them know you are there for them.
    I often remind my kids that grandkids are why I had them!
    It is hard to keep a delicate balance but work at it. The grand is top priority; your chlid is grown.
    I have 7 kids, 6 grands so far and all know beyond a doubt that I LOVE them.
    It is so much fun with each. I love time with each one although they are all very different as your relationships with them will be.
    Be there for them, teach what you can, listen to them, play! Make it fun for them and comfortable. No fear!
    Blessings

  120. I have 4 grandkids, every Christmas they each get a special decoration as park of their presents. They also have a storage box to keep them in. I date the decorations, so later they can look back and see how their likes have changed over the years,

    ReplyDelete
  121. I am not a Grandma, but my advice would be to just be there for them no matter what, whether it be good or bad. They need to know that you love them unconditionally.

    ReplyDelete
  122. I'm not a grandma, but will tell you that the most fun was when my grandma would do things with me that my mom didn't do. It was just the two of us!! Create your own memories!!

  123. My grandson is far away so I don't really get to be a granny, except by mail. So i send him books so he'll know that i'm always thinking about him.

  125. (get a tongue guard soyou can bite your tongue on unsolicited advice - that's what I'll need!). Otherwise, just enjoy every minute, takes lots of pictures of the baby with the parents (since they can't take the pictures themselves). Maybe even keep a private baby book of the baby's progress, since the mom may be so busy that she'll forget to record things, and it would be a nice surprise for her at baby's first birthday!
