    One of my Christmas Quilts

    This is a quilt that I designed for my grandson's Christmas gift. He plans to attend Texas Christian University when he graduates and wanted a quilt using their colors.

    I had difficulty finding the 3 colors I wanted. I wanted a dark, medium, and light...but couldn't find a satisfactory medium color. This one is as close as I could get.

    I used EQ7 to design the quilt. I know the quality isn't as good as it should be, but I'm very new to piecing as well as quilting. I did not take it to a long-arm quilter. I decided I wanted the gift to be entirely from me.

    I'm hoping to become better as I keep doing this. I actually thought it would be quite a mess, but I don't think it turned out too bad.

    It is wonderful. I think the quilting gives an effect of a knited sweater. That's what my eyes see. Really cool. He will carry many great memories with him in this quilt.

    Beautiful quilt.
    TCU is a great choice for a school. No doubt your grandson will "feel the love" when he carries it to school.

    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.
