    2 more quilt done

    Some of yous know, I have been makeing quilts for my grdkids & my 2 grt grdsons, the twin boys. I've kind of put a stop on makeing quilts for me/family, at home here. I've starting to make quilts for my 6 brothers and 2 sisters. I'm sorry to say this, but even though I have brothers. Some of my brothers and me aren't close. Here is 2 quilts I've made for my sisters Sandra & Kathy. Eventually down the road the next set of quilts will be for my 3 sister/brother/in law. Name:  001.JPG

    That's a good way to avoid controversy over who gets which of the lovely quilts.

    Great quilts. You are so productive. I would never attempt quilts for all family, just my siblings and grandchildren. If I started on nieces and nephews I would never be done, between grands, great grands, and great greats my parents have 70 something. And that just my side of the family, whew!

    I wish I had your fortitude and ability to get things finished! Your quilts always look pieced so exact. Your family members will be blessed to have them.

    You are so generous to share your quilts with so many. And, you are so prolific. I am amazed at how quickly and precisely you assemble a quilt. Your stash must by impressive! Happy quilting!

    Your quilts just get better and better. Excellent piecing work.
