    I saw some of the others share their finished work, so I thought I would.
    I will eventually get a quilt made for each member of my family. Luckily I have a huge one, so it will take me a while. :D

    OK, here is the quilt I made for my daughter. It is a nine patch alternated with snowball blocks. The lighter fabric is feedsack I got from my uncle.

    This is a quilt I put together for my youngest son, who shares a room with the older son. They are made from the same material. It is a simple brick path.

    This is an airplane quilt I made for my son, it's name is Planes in Formation, which is sewn into the top panel.

    Here are a few more. :wink:

    OK, this one is just fun. This is my youngest son, Dawson, who absolutely had to help me baste my quilt today. I figured if it does not get pinned exactly right, those spots will be precious memories of this time we had today. He is 5.

    This is a baby blanket I made for a friend for the price of the fabric. The pattern is one I got from a magazine, and it is a woven lover's knot, I think.

    This one is my avatar picture, and it has a fun story. Somehow my mom got hold of some scrub scraps, and gave them to me. This is a baby blanket I made for a coworker, and she is a nurse like me. This is my first attempt at triangles.

    You are so generous and thoughtful! (lol) The black and white one is for me. I have never made one for myself. There are better pics of it further back on the picture board, it is called my pride and joy. Thanks!

    Those are awesome. Where do you find the time? Your son looks adorable too. He's lucky to have you for a Mom.

    jacquemoe,

    Thank you. I am lucky to have that kiddo for a son, he is priceless. As for the time to quilt, I really don't have much. These pictures encompass most of my quilting work over the last 3 or 4 years, minus 2 baby quilts I did not have the presence of mind to take pictures of before giving them away. In fact, it has taken me until today to find the time to even start to baste that behemoth of a quilt I am working on now (the black and white one). Escaping into quilting helps me keep my sanity. Crazy how cutting something up and putting it back together can keep me calm and my sanity at hand, huh?

    What nice quilts! I bet everyone loves receiving them. I'm glad you're making one for yourself! It's gorgeous. Your assistant is adorable. He looks like he is really concentrating on getting those pins in just perfectly!

    Hi All, I just joined the 16th with the help of my G-son. Those kids are so smart! I love seeing all your quilts robbi. Beautiful job! I'd love to post some pics too but have to wait for my helper.
