    They are both quite pretty, and your auntie, too!

    I especially love #1, your two sided design is well thought out.

    I like #2 quite well, also. It's more "arty", and very charming.

    I'd like to try making them both!

    I like both quilts, too! I'm afraid to say, I still have a couple of UFOs - I'm envious that you finished your quilts

    What a great feeling that those quilts were so WANTED and loved . That's terrific that they are going to homes where they will be greatly enjoyed. I like them both.

    Happy Stitching! Kim

    They are all beautiful. I make lots of scrappy quilts. I try to give my quils to someone I think needs a quilt. I can make them faster than I can find someone for them. All my kids, Grands and Great Grands have several. I have 35 or more quilts waiting for homes. People I don't know have some of my quilts. So far everyone loves them except for my other Granddaughter. I only have two Granddaughters, one loves them this one doesn't, she has several but doesn't use them.

    Yes,when I feel moved to do something I don't see as my normal thing,someone benefits.I drag things home from the auctions all the time that I have no logical reason to bid on.And low and behold someone needs what I drug home.Could be a coffee pot,toaster,maybe a box of sheets.The best one was a lounge chair I let the auctioneer talk me into for$2.00.Well when I got home,my sis had left a message on my machine asking me to look for a loungechair for her hushband .He was dying of cancer and couldn't sleep in bed any longer.I just about fell over.I had it in the back of my car.Oh happy day!!!

    You know what motivates me?
    Moving every 2 to 3 years for professional reason and living by myself. With time I got so tired of trying to find a place for everything that I owned or that I had kept "in case of...." and craft things *I love almost any crafts* and moving them around with my bones and muscles getting older and painful, I started to read books like (and I translate as I read them in french) "simplify your life - simple life - stepping lightly - your life or your money - etc
    it helped me with the decision to keep only what I used regularly. lessons learned. loll
    and I am not getting any younger!
    I started to get rid of things that I had not used in the last 5 years or so... and I have not missed anything yet
    I don't have kids to leave them with the "cleaning up" after I'm gone.

    Now you know why I am not a collector of "too much" of anything (exceptions apply of course loll)
    rich and free in other ways loll

    Girl, I have made so many quilts "just because". I love the fabric, the process and the ability to create something. I keep a stack in my living room and when we have visitors, they get to take one home if they really fall in love with it, or if they just ask. I keep my "keepers" in a separate place. I LOVE being able to give and share them. It makes it worth while.

    that is what I am aiming at! quilt and wait for the right owner to come foward. I have 3 nieces and they will get some if ever they like what I do and express a desire to have one. I would not want them not to be used and I am not sure they like any kind of "homemade" craft

    I love it when somebody likes a quilt that I don't care for. I am so glad your not so loved quilts found true loving homes. Keep on a quilting.
