    These are the quilts I started piecing in 2006/2008 . The Car Quilt was my husbands Christmas gift I started in 2006. I got my Crown Jewel in Sept. 2010. Got it up and running in Dec. So he recieved his gift on Christmas 4 years later. Never to late.
    The Butterfly Quilt , was a class I took in 2008 " Quilting With Corners"by Cheryl Phillips @ my local quilt shop. I desided to make it a King Size. It was a wedding gift for a very close friend.

    great quilts! It is so much fun to make, and fun to give as gifts. My sister did the butterfly one, that is gorgeous.

    Both are wonderful quilts. You must have enjoyed making them with the special people in mind.

    I like them both. I have been wanting to do the butterfly since I love bargellos.

    They are both so nice! Isn't longarm quilting a challenge? Thanks for sharing,
    Karen in La.

    Soccertxi;
    Thank you, Yes, my first Longarm quilting. I have a Babylock Crown Jewel / with Quilt in Motion. I got in Sept 2010, but didn't get it up and running until December(my dad was very sick and passed away in Nov. )
    All but the butterflies in the corners (done with QM) is freehand.

    Cuppi, Thank you, I loved making the butterfly. Want to do another for myself. Can't seem to hang on to anything I make. Are you like that?
