I finally found the pix of the kids' quilts.

With my daughter's, I had left over hexagons & made them into little flower pillows for her bed. (one center hexagon surrounded by 6 of a contrasting color) She loved the shapes.

Nick, 3rd son. Corduroy- 2000 & then again in 2001.

Amanda, daughter. 1999, 1st large quilt.

Zach, 2nd son. 2004, wanted school colors & spool pattern.

wonderful, wonderful works!
Personally, my favorite is the first, with the black. I do love them all, though.
can you tell a bit more about the unordinary shape of the second one? I love its uniqueness.

These are beautiful!

OMgosh! after going back over these again, I don't know how I could say the first was my fave! They are all so wonderful. I don't just see spools in the last bc I see "bows", too.
The middle one still steals my interest. I've never seen anyone work such a large piece into something so out of the ordinary, which TOTALLY STEALS MY HEART!....never seen one not be 'SQUARE/rectangular/TRADITIONAL!'

I was trying to figure out which material you used on the 1st one...it looks so soft. Then I went back & saw that you had listed corderoy as the material. I love the colors. They look so rich & vibrant. I'm thinking that you spent some time on the second one!!! I did a small quilt not too long ago in which I used a diamond pattern & after I commited myself to it (by cutting all the material) I thought I might be a little crazy. It was hard to walk away from the table without taking some of the little diamond pieces with me. I ended up covering the work with a large cutting mat to keep the pieces from floating around & ending up in other rooms. I guess I'm not the only crazy one! LOL. Great job! The 3rd one is really neat. It draws your eyes into it & keeps you looking from one section to another. Love the school colors!

Thanks everyone. The kids really do love them. Each quilt had it's own challenges.

The corduroy quilt was my own design inspired by the amish quilts. My son said he didn't care what pattern as long as it was corduroy. I used some of his grandma's dresses, both worn & never worn (bc she didn't like them once she got them). She had given me "new" black corduroy, but when we washed it for the first time, much of the nap/pile/fuzz fell out! :cry: :evil: Thus the 2 years. I bought more black & had to re-do the top, attach it, then re-quilt the whole thing.

With Amanda's heagon, it was my very 1st. It wasn't that difficult. Just like squares really, sewing together rows. The hard part was keeping them from moving outta place like while wating to sew like Pam said.

Zach's challenge was finding many shades of orange & then coordinating them. I got tired of doing it after an hour & told my son if he wanted his quilt he'd better help coordinate! He loved it, we had a good time bonding.

Wonderful work again! I think quilting is the better part of bonding with friends, family, and community. You do great work!

Those are all three wonderful mamapeach. I can't believe what you had to go through on that first one though. That's dedication. Good job on all of them! :thumbup:
