    I am making quilts for all my nieces/nephews (5) and their children (9) so am posting some pictures as they are given their quilts. This is a picture of my first niece and her daughter with their quilts.

    The quilt for Jennifer was made from a free internet pattern titled "High Light" from allpeoplequilt.com and is found here - http://www.allpeoplequilt.com/projec...h-light_2.html

    The quilt for Kendall was ad-libbed by me based on the fabric so there is no pattern for that quilt. The blocks are, however, basically log cabin blocks with fussy cut centers, framed in black with sashing between rows and columns.

    Lovely quilts but I really think the colour choices for Kendall's quilt suited the young lassie.

    Great job. Sounds like you will be busy for a while.

    Both quilts came out beautiful. And by the smiles on their faces I am pretty sure they agree with me!

    About half of the quilts are finished. Fortunately, I am not giving them for any particular ocassion so don't have any self-imposed deadlines. I am trying to give them to the oldest niece/nephew (and their children) first and then go down the line.

    I love the yellow with the black and white. And that darling little girl also has a wonderful quilt in her hands.
