    I don't have individual pics of all of them. I still need to get them whenever I see the kids again. (I could shoot myself for not taking them, but I was already 2.5 hrs late as it was)

    Finished them a little late, but they made it:)

    Here are a couple pics of all the kids together with the quilts

    Here are some individual pics of some of the tops.

    QAYG Pinwheels (inside pinwheels are 6" finished)

    Pink Drunkards Path

    Opposites Attract Quilt (there were two of these. The colors on them are identical but I switched them around. So each quilt was the opposite of the other)
    [IMG]http://i152.photobucket.com/albums/s...9/100_0395.jpg[/IMG]

    There was also a blue Drunkards Path. I can't find the pic. There was one with cross stitch transportation and one John Deere Triple Irish Chain that I dont' have pics of.

    Aw thank all:)

    KO24-the pattern is a disappearing 9 patch with 4 different fabrics. It's just a 9 patch that you then cut into quarters. You switch the top corner and the bottom corner without turning the block and sew back together.

    I'm sure that was clear as mud...LOL But,hey, I tried:)


    It was sooooo much fun to see their faces. The youngest (3yo) got the John Deere. He loves tractors. when he opened it, he laid down on it immediately. He wouldn't let anyone else touch it. It was soo cute.

    Thanks so much everyone:)

    There was no fighting over them. They were each made with specific children in mind. I took their tastes into consideration.

    Took me two yrs to finish them but it was totally worth it to see all their faces:)

    The kids and the quilts are amazing. They look so pleased with their treasure! That would make a great MasterCard commercial...priceless.
