    These are the quilts I made this year. There are nine bed quilts and one baby quilt. I made another baby quilt, but it managed to leave home without being photographed. These are all gifts for kids, grandkids, and great grandkids. All that's left to do for eight of them is to wash, dry, wrap, and put under the tree. Granddaughter's graduation quilt will be given to her the next time she is here. And the two baby quilts have already been given.

    My goal is to make a quilt for each of our kids, grandkids, and great grandkids. Total of 39. I only have 12 more to go. I plan to do eight next year, hopefully. I know there are three graduation quilts to be made. And there are still three kids left who have not gotten a quilt yet. And I know there will be another baby quilt as another grandson and wife are pregnant.

    I never can get the photos small enough to post here, so here's the link to my Webshots:

    Thank you for looking.

    Have dial up service so didn't get to see many of your quilts, but, what I saw were beautiful! Looks like you do a lot of original & intricate work. Your family will treasure each of their gifts. Have been doing the same for my kids, gr kids and gr gr kids but there are not as many as you are doing and my quilts are very easy simple ones. Someday, I hope to be able to do something as beautiful as you can do. Great quilts. :D

    Every one of your quilts was a stunning work of art. Your family members will be overjoyed to receive them on Christmas morning. Fabulous job--you are a very talented quilter!!!! (I loved them all but my favorite was Patched into the Thirties.)

    Thank you all for your kind words. Some of those quilts I did not particular care for during the piecing process, but when finished, not too bad. Others I liked from the start.

    I am especially pleased with the graduation quilt. That one took from March to now to complete. I even had to buy new software to get the photos the size I wanted. Then had trouble with the fabric for the printer. And my main machine had to go in for repairs. Then there was the ever present "operator error" with everything. But it all turned out fairly nice.

    Thanks again for your comments.
