Grandpa's Pockets

Grandpa's Pockets

Pieced and quilted by Kathy Cracroft Wilhelmsen (Draper, Utah – 2007).
Made from quilter’s flannel and old blue jeans.

Grandchildren love to see what coins, trinkets, or other surprises might be hiding in grandpa’s pockets. This quilt is made to hold little treasures, and it could start a fun family tradition for when grandchildren come to visit.

I donated this quilt to Ami Simms’ Alzheimer’s Art Quilt Initiative, and it sold for $55 at the Houston International Quilt Festival in November 2007. I dedicated it to the dear, good grandpas who lived at the same Alzheimer’s facility where my mother resided.

Size is 9 x 12 inches.
