    4 quilts in less than 2 months

    Last summer I planned to make quilts for my grand daughters, to go with their new bedrooms. I was late getting started , then we had flood damage to repair in Sept. from hurricanes Irene and Lee. In Dec I was in the hospital for a week with chest pain and heart catherization. I finished the last quilt at 8:00Pm Christmas eve. And I forgot to mention these are first full size quilts I have made. I usually do table runners or wall quilts.

    They are all beautiful quilts!! I applaud you being able to do them in 2 months. One year I made 4 quilts in about 4 months for Christmas and burned myself out, so I stopped quilting for a little while.

    They are all gorgeous. And #3 is my favorite. You did a great job, with all the obstacles you have overcome. Hope that your health remains well.

    and not of wood and stone,
    a place where happiness lives
    and memories are sewn.
