    Quilts I made for Christmas

    Here are some of the quilts I made for Christmas this past year. Sorry for the bad layout of the quilts; I had to just toss them over a table and snap pictures at the last second before they were all given away!

    The OBW I made for my sister; back (showing the panel I used) & the front:




    My first Bargello; for my Mom (guess what her 2 favorite colors are?)




    Skulls and flames and dragons for my nephew:




    Pink kitty-cats for my niece: (I really hated this quilt by the time I was done. SO MANY LOST POINTS! Some of these cats must have had a rough life because there are some oddly shaped ears! LOL)

    Part two!

    More kitties; this one went to my husband's grandma (who loves cats, and pink and yellow):




    This started as a "racer" just to try one out, but then I chopped it up and added sashing and decided it would be perfect for my father-in-law: (I think I've posted in-progress pics of this one)




    For my mother-in-law, some pretty birds! It looks kind of drab and blurry in these pics - it's a lot more rich in person.




    For my cousin & his wife, a last-second quilt. I made this start-to-finish in one weekend!




    And a couple of easy little quilts for their two boys:






    Last one I have pics for is a very simple d9p for my brother-in-law:




    Thanks for looking!

    Wow, you were busy! Good job on all of them. I had a cat once whose one ear was burned in a fire. You can just pretend that quilt is in memory of Midnight

    Fantastic quilts! I love the fabric you used on the one for your cousin and his wife. I also really like the pattern on your father-in-law's. But now the pink and black kitties I don't think I could have given away, it's too cute!!

    All look great.
    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.
