    4 quilts finished



    I have finally finished up 4 quilts, and can get them out here. Enjoy looking

    The first one is for a great niece and I just used scraps for the blocks, and then on the sashing, I used the monogram on my machine to add all the names of her second cousins and their birthyear. The border is some material I had on hand, which blended well with the blocks. I had fleece for the backing that says miracle baby, which every baby is, in my humble opinion.

    The next one is also made of scrap squares, and will be given to the single guys at our family gathering in July.

    This next one will be given to the single gals at our family gathering. It was a OBW top that I finished a couple of years ago, and just could not finish at the time. I had some flowery fleece to use on the back.

    This one is the Anita's Arrowhead and I started it at a quilt retreat in November of 2012. I found some black and white fleece for the backing and just did SID with a red variegated for the quilting. It will be given to one of the couples that comes to a family gathering in July.

    A home is built of peace and love,
    and not of wood and stone,
    a place where happiness lives
    and memories are sewn.

    All are great projects but #1 really catches my eye. It looks so soft and ladylike.

    They are all beauties. My favorite is #1 'cause I'm just an old fashioned gal....You do great work...
    Families are like old quilts....although they tend to unravel at times...each can be stitched back together with love.
