    Here are quilts I made for my grandkids. These are the first I've had quilted -- and my quilter has been doing this for only a year, about like me -- so we're both relative newbies.

    My 12-year old DGD picked out the Carpenter Star and the backing -- I call it "Meandering Ameoba" because that's what the variegated thread looks like on the black.

    My 13-year old DGS picked out the Embers gradient pattern -- he said, "Mimi, it will make my bed look like it's on fire!" That's for sure! So I named it "Bed's on Fire." (I made the back dark in case he needs to calm down.)

    The Amish-looking on-point one is for my 16-year old DGS -- hope it looks sufficiently Goth. Since I managed to cut the tips off the top "mountains," I'm calling it "Pointless."

    I still have the binding handwork to finish -- and a drive from Little Rock to Philadelphia next week. Eeek!

    Wow! His bed is on fire, for sure. I know they will appreciate these. All well done.

    Have a safe trip!

    I love all of these but Joe's does look like the bed is burning. Love the way you came up with the names! Have a safe trip, that's a long drive.

    Joe's bed-on-fire is fabulous! What a sense of color he has!

    For a newbie, you've done a bang up job on all of them, congratulations!
    Have a safe trip and a great holiday with your family.
