    My friend asked me if I would take her Mom's clothes and make her, her sister and brother each quilts. well OF COURSE! So this is what I have been working on, not easy at all to do since most of them are knits, but I sent her these photos tonight and they are very excited. I am leaving the pockets opened each quilt will have a pocket that has the button that closes it on it, two with the larger ones and one with the tiny one, I am kind of partial to the tiny one it is cute!

    Thanks LadyPetite, They wanted quilts that they could curl up under so I hope that these will hold up.

    Love 'em. I love quilts and quilting...and admire the artistry of many of the traditional and complex designs. Quilts like yours however, are my absolute all-time favourites...made with the most special fabrics, creatively pieced to bring out their very best....PRICELESS:).

    I'm working on lap quilts right now from my later father-in-law's flannel shirts. So nice of you do do this for your friend.

    Thank you everyone for your wonderfully kind comments! I sent her pictures of what I had gotten done so far, and her reaction really motivated me to get them done. They are so excited.
