A few years ago, I decided to make quilts for all of the adult children in our family and some of the adult grandchildren. I had only been quilting for a couple of years and most of them were simple quilts (turning twenty and four patch/nine patch and a few panel quilts).
These turned out to be very time consuming but was able to get about 8 of them done. Remember I am a self taught quilter who doesn't get to go to classes. They are a little too expensive for our budget. I did go to one retreat about 3 years ago. Here are some of my favorites.

For Daughter Kim

For son Matthew and wife Steph (sorry not a better picture)

They are all so beautiful, you must be very proud. I wouldn't worry too much about the classes--yes, they are fun--but often times in the end, it is just you and that pattern in front of you!
