    Beautiful quilts, and that last one really caught my eye as well, so would like to know the pattern. Looks perfect for disposing of a lot of these jelly rolls I have hanging around!

    The first one is called Hypnosis and the second one is Simply Strippy. They are from the book "Simply Done" by Gathering Friends. They design quilts and sew with a lot of Moda fabrics. The Simply Strippy quilt I added a chenille border. Hypnosis did not have a border and I also added a chenille border. It just added to the quilt. The Gathering Friends Quilt shop handles the chenille fabric. I love it. I will post a picture of my son's quilt in a later post. It also has the chenille border and is very masculine.

    I hope they appreciated them. They seemed to be thrilled. I am retired, so I can quilt more than I used to. I also have a longarm machine which does help. Altho, I had to work those in between my customers quilts. I probably started last May. Thought I had enough time, but as it got closer mI was getting nervous. Three weeks before Xmas I found out my brother was coming home for Xmas, so I decided quickly to make him a quilt. He lost his wife to a brain tumor four years ago, and I have always wanted to do this for him. He has 3 sons 23, 17 and 15, that I would like to make one for. That may be my next goal. I have quite a stash of fabric and kits to make, that I bought when I was still working. I also want to make quilts for the priests of our parish. (5) We will see how it goes.

    Wow! Those are great! I really love your taste in fabric. The simply strippy and the other one for your daughter, the squares made out of what look like stripped triangles really caught my eye; mostly for the colors you chose. I probably wouldn't have been so enamored with them had they not been done in those particular colors. I also like the quilt in your avatar.

    The quilt in my Avatar went to SulaBug. She was my Nov./Dec. Doll Quilt exchange partner, so thought I wouldput it in my Avatar, because it is so colorful. We looked a long time for all the striped material. When I started the quilt I hated it. It wasn't until it was all done that I really enjoyed. She also loved it. I really swore I would not make another one, but now I would like one for myself.
