The first thing I want to show you is my Christmas present quilt. I love this. I almost gave up on the border and just put a solid fabric and called it finished but I'm so glad I didn't do that. I used 2 1/2" squares and did a double border with them. I want to quilt this one soon but it doesn't look like it will be ready for this Christmas...I have too many quilts on my quilting stack right now that have priority.
Here's two quilts I quilted for a friend. Yes, they look almost exactly alike...She made these for charity quilts and gave them to me to practice on. She was very pleased with them and they were fun to do too.
I made this block for a friend of mine going through Chemo. The girls in my tatting group all made blocks and the quilt is being put together by another friend of mine. I'll be getting the quilt back tomorrow to quilt it so you will see the whole quilt soon. The fabric in my block was Quilt for a Cure fabric from several years ago. I was given a love quilt that had some of this fabric in it when I was going through my chemo years ago. I made two quilts using this fabric and I had a small amount left over and just had to use it for my friend. I know she will love this little love quilt. I can't wait to get it back. I've seen the blocks and they are wonderful but I haven't yet see the quilt together yet...
I hope you are having a wonderful holiday season and enjoying your family time. Last week, we went to Holiday in the Park one night and here's a picture of my son and his little family...The little person in the middle is why I'm not sewing as much as I used to! I keep her on Friday nights and Saturdays and she keeps me hopping! She's alot of fun and I really enjoy my time with her. She loves fabric and colors and I hope she will be a future quilter!
Here they are again with my sweet husband.
Yesterday was my youngest grandson's (Trent) 4th birthday! Time sure goes quickly! I can't believe he is already 4...We went and celebrated his birthday. He had a soccer birthday party. So much fun!
Ok, gotta get busy now. I'll have more to show later in the week. Please come back and see me. Until next time, happy quilting....
