    Attaching some pics of the quilts I made for two of my Grandsons as Christmas gifts. The quilts are the same except for small differences and the backing, so am only putting a picture of one of them on with this post. I made them from kits I got on Connecting Threads last year. One of the backings is Walmart fabric - the holly vining, the other I believe I got last year from fabric.com.

    I love both backing fabrics, but I think the fabric I got from Walmart is much more striking.

    I had it quilted by Linda Hahn in Manalapan, NJ. The design is snowflakes, though I don't think the pictures show the quilting off too well.

    The quilt was a kit - I wasn't too thrilled with the colors when I got the kit, but it turned out very well.
