    Quilts I've made lately.

    I haven't posted anything I've made in a long time because my computer is difficult with pictures. I think this will go through hopefully, but as I previewed them, some of the pictures aren't very clear. I made all these quilts since July and I also moved at the same time, not smart at all to do this. I made three quilts from Maggie Malone's Weekend Quilt book and yes, you can do it in a weekend. The black and blue, the black and gray are the Irish Chain and the Red, blue and white are called something like Butterflies in the corner, but I did change that one some. I usually change each pattern I use. The orange quilt is from one of Kim Brackett's patterns (I adore her patterns). I made all the quilts except the blue and black Irish Chain for my brother's family. My DIL loved the Irish Chain made for my nephew so I had to make my son a blue and black long enough for him (he's 6'3") tall. That's his head peeking out over the top at Thanksgiving. The other quilts were all given to 3 generations before Christmas. Of course, my long arm really messed me up badly and that's another story all together. But I gave them away and everyone was very pleased to receive them. And it warmed my heart too.

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    I really love the 1st one, last one and black and white one! Really like them all! You did a great job! And moved! Puts me to shame doing very little! Got to get going in 2017! Goal is to make at least something every month and finish Christmas 2016 in time for Christmas 2017! 😅

    I loved making these quilts. I asked one niece what favorite colors were with each niece, nephew, great nieces. I found out that one nephew loved black but I added the silver gray and made the Irish Chain. One niece and her daughter loved mint, which was very difficult to find. One great niece adores Halloween so I made hers orange scraps with black, the back has some spiders on it. I made an I Spy quilt for the great great nephew and a lovely jelly row quilt for his great grandma. Another niece likes gray so added some charcoal for slashing and used a more modern pattern. I made these during a really stressful period in my life but I always had something to look forward to with the piecing. I forced myself to sew and in the end, it saved my sanity. So glad you all liked the quilts.
