    My first quilts given as Christmas gifts.

    I am a new quilter. I just started In July. My DDH bought me a Husqvarna Viking Ruby sewing embroidery machine in July 2012. The attached pictures are a few of the items that I made for Christmas gifts. Hope you enjoy.

    Wow! It didn't take you long to get the hang of it. Those turned out wonderful. How are you going to top it next year?

    My goodness... you have been VERY busy!
    Looks like you put a lot of thought to match the quilt to each person.

    I retire in March and we are moving to Texas right after Christmas next year. My goal for next Christmas is 6 twins and 2 doubles.

    Better start as soon as you retire! This is a great week to buy fabric with all the inventory sales.

    You've done some nice work and they are great gifts. Enjoy your new found hobby.
    Always in Stitches,

    So blessed in the opportunity of life, the gifts of nature, and the choice to do good to others. I'm thankful for this day.

    Wow, you have been busy! Imagine what you'll get done when you retire. I'll bet your family was thrilled. I love your use of the rail fence pattern. The first green one really jumped out at me with those large strips. Happy Holidays!

    You have been busy!! Beautiful quilts! The sports quilt got my attention when I saw Chicago Bulls and SOX. "Oh goody - SOX", I thought. Then realized - wrong SOX.

    You have quite a goal for next Christmas! Enjoy.

    That is the White Sox emblem. I live just south of Chicago. I made this for my son-n-law. He loved the quilt.
