    Christmas quilts I gave to grandkids and mother

    These are some very bad pictures of these three quilts, but they're all I've got to show. I think I need a class in photographing quilts. But the one is of quilts I made for the grandkids using Watermelon Shuffle pattern from Hoffman. And the other is a panel that I bought at the LQS ad added a pieced border and a plain border to. My long arm quilter did a magnificent job of quilting the poinsettia one, but sadly it doesn't show up in the picture. My mother lives in a retirement village and she is going to put it up on the wall outside her apartment. Thanks for looking.

    I love that they are so different, and each just right for the recipient. I'd love to try a Watermelon Shuffle- not too much seam matching, but so fresh and lively!

    Thank you for your compliments. I got the panel from Stitchin' Heaven, my LQS, but Keepsake Quilting also had it in their Christmas catalog as a kit (no borders). You might try them.
