    Here are two more quilts that I just got back from the quilter. The first one is a queen size that I made for my Mom and Dad. They have a lot to celebrate this year. My Dad turned 70, Mom will be 65 next month, October is their 45 Wedding anniversary, and Mom is going to retire this year. So we are going to have a big Celebration Party for them this fall. The second one is a baby quilt that I have made for my neice's baby boy who should join this world the middle of Sept.

    Well they didn't post in the right order but I think you can figure them out.

    Absolutely Gorgeous! I'd sure take them off of your hands!LOL. I have a cousin (in law) who loves Mickey Mouse, she's pregnant now and is doing the baby's room in Mickey and she would absolutely fall in love with this one.

    Yes, My kitty (Oreo) has helped me make all of my quilts. She likes to sit on my table on top of all of the fabric. I just have to really watch her because we also have a puppy and if Oreo knocks down any of the fabric then the puppy thinks that she has a new chew toy.

    The quilts are wonderful!!! I wish I had a quilter! LOL Actually I don't mind machine quilting...its handstitching the binding down that I don't care for... I get to that point and usually a project will sit for a few more days before I get back to it to finish it up! I don't care for the way a binding looks when it is machine stitched down or I would do it that way!

    Anyway, lovely quilts! Congrats on getting them done!

    Congrats to your Mom & Dad! What a wonderful gift. Wish my DD sewed.
    I have never been able to get her interested, my sister and I have both tried for years but no dice. Mygrandmother and my Mother taught my sister and me both to sew and I tell my daughter that she is breaking the chain of tradition.

    Thank you all for your kind words and thoughts. I really appreciate them. As I said my mom is going to retire in October and I'm trying to get her interested in quilting. She has worked all of her life and really doesn't have any hobbies. So I tell her that she needs to pick up quilting. She lives close by and I already have everything that she needs. I told her that she needs to come here during the day when I'm at work and just make quilts. She really doesn't have the room to set up everything at her house so I said just come here and do it. I hope that she will. She is going to have to do something or she is just going to be really boared all of the time.
