    Just took them out of the dryer tonight! These are the last of the Christmas gifts coming from the sewing room this year.

    This is Rachel's--my 19 year old college girl. She picked the fabrics from my stash. I love the pine needle fabrics!

    And this is Jenny's--my son's new fianc. She and I went shopping together so she could find what she liked. My stash didn't have enough to make two. :-D

    I was thinking on a wedding quilt for them, but, since she'll inherit all the quilts I've made for him... which is at least four... they are full of quilts!

    awesome quilts, love the colours. I just finished one and it took longer than I thought. Do you have special scissors to do the clipping?

    Both very nice Karla! Are they flannel or homespun?

    Flannel, Jan. :-D I don't much care for dealing with homespun.

    Daisy.. I had to do it all with regular scissors. Bah! On the first one pictured, I tried snipping the long way across first. It didn't lay quite flat so on one spot the scissors slit the square about 1/3". I had to steam a seam a piece over it. I was so much more careful then, and finished using the tip of the scissors for most of it. That's harder.

    Now that you've finished both these quilts -- did you know that the AccuCut Go Cutter has a die for these blocks where the ragged edge is cut when you cut out the block??? So cut and sew and go... :D

    Wow, those are both just beautiful and look really warm. I think I may need to do one of these.

    Thanks, everyone! You are right when you say they're warm and cuddy--I call them "a hug-to-go!" There's no particular pattern, but I wrote out the directions and have posted them here several times... let me know if you'd like them again.

    Can you point me to the thread where they were? I'd like to make one of these, they look so nice. Thanks!
