    Friends of a Feather was made for my parents as an anniversary gift. They are backyard birders. Missed it in the shot, but at the base of the tree is a bushy squirrel tail peeking out from behind.

    I-Spy Hot Air Balloons was a baby quilt I made for a neighbor of my parents. Mom didn't think it was really a baby quilt but I thought it would grow with the baby. Oh well...

    Kira's Dream was based on a dream a friend of mine had.

    On the Road Again was a full size that I made for my folks camper. They planned to travel after they retired. (ended up raising a granddaughter instead) All the patches on the quilt were collected from the different places we traveled to when I was a kid. I had them on a jacket that I had out grown years ago.

    All of your quilts are very nice. I always make baby quilts larger than the norm so they can be used on a toddler bed as well as a crib.

    I Spy balloons is a great idea, I've never seen that before. Little baby quilts are outgrown way too soon and bigger is good. I'm sure your folks love both the quilts you did for them and the last one sounds sentimental with memories with you using the patches.

    Great collection. I also make my baby quilts big enough to be drag around quilts for small kids. They are only actual babies for so short a time and the mom may want a lap quilt during cuddles, and, Heaven forbid, croup.

    They're great! I especially like On the Road Again. Is there a pattern for that?

    No actually there isn't a pattern. I found a picture of a map that had all the states outline and blew it up 200x's the actual size. I used Wonder Under and hand appliqued everything.(this was before I had a sewing machine) I tried to do each state with something that the state was known for. North Carolina=the curse of the dogwoods. If the bloom before the final 4 basketball tournament, the Tarheel will loose, lol. VA--Cardinals, Wisc--Cows for cheese, etc... Then I spread out the patches and sewed them on and hand quilted everything.

    I don't have a picture of the smaller version I had done for the son of a friend of mine. After he passed his girlfriend asked me if there was something I could do with the patches he had collected of his travels around the US.

    Thanks ya'll for you wonderful comments. I do mostly applique because I can't make 2 pieced blocks come out the same sized no matter how hard I try.

    Someone on here was asking about "wonky" quilt patterns. I'm great with wonky without even trying!! Even if I square everything up after every piece of fabric attached, it's going to come out lopsided by the time it gets to the next piece.

    Again thank you, your words were very nice to read!
