    Hi,

    I've left comments on here but never posted pics before. These are a few I made a couple of years ago.

    The 1st one is a Crazy Shortcut Quilt as You Go Quilt for my oldest son.


    The 2nd is a memory quilt I made in memory of my beloved stepson that went home to be with Jesus in 2009.

    The 3rd is one I designed and made for my father-in-law. I had just started quilting when I made it.

    I found a pic of a quilt like this and liked it so I copied it. I made this during the week of my stepson's death to help me deal with my grief.

    Again saw something on-line and I copied it...sort of. This sold at a church sale for $75 to raise funds for the youth trips.

    Thanks Lori! Loosing SS was very hard. Quilting helped me get through my grief at the initial loss.

    As you can all see it seems I like scrappy quilts...I really have made several that aren't scrappy too. I'll have to look for those pictures.

    Most of my quilts are twin size or smaller. Seems I'm in the age bracket where there are lots of grandbabies being born! We just had number 8 born last week and I haven't even gotten his quilt started...bad Nana! (I do have the fabric picked out at least!)

    My condolences to you and your family. Quilting is wonderful therapy. I draw a lot of comfort from mine, and it looks like the same for you. I love the stack n whack in the first pic. The colors are so beautiful!

    So sorry for the loss of your stepson. All your quilts are beautiful and very well made. I really like the scrappy one in your avatar; I'll have to put in on my "to-do" list!

    Yes it does help doesn't it. My DM passed away in April from issues related to her Alzheimers and I spent a lot of time quilting while off of work. It's a wonderful therapy for me...although it's definitely not cheaper than a therapist!

    Thanks Sue! My mom's fav flower was lilacs so I did that in purple and called it "Lilac Love" for her. I hand quilted it with large flowers using the big stitch method. Since she was in a nursing home and we were afraid the quilt would "find it's way to someone else" I made a template of her full name and quilted it around the border with smaller flowers at each corner. I sent it to her for Christmas. My family took it to her in the nursing home. They left it for a few days then took it back home and would take it to her ever so often. My DSIL just mailed it back to me. It was very bittersweet to receive it back.

    Very nice quilts! You have been a very busy lady! Sorry about your step-son. It is so hard losing a child. Been there and done that. Thank God for quilting to help ease my sorrow.
