    Some of what I did for Christmas and one for our quilting group

    I made the kitty quilt for a friend, the eagle quilt for my husband, and the Santa quilt for a friend. I made many of the remote caddies for gifts.

    The brown quilt was made for a brown bag event in our quilting group. What fun that was. We put three fat quarters in a brown paper bag along with our name. They were lined up on a table and then we each chose one. We had to create something with the 3 fat quarters for that person just using the fat quarters enclosed or we could add fabric. I added the center panel and some of the fabric for the border. It was great fun to see everyone open their creation and we are doing it again in April. We have so many snowbirds in our group that we do the brown bag in April, but the finished product is not revealed until everyone is back in AZ in Jan. of the next year.

    Great work. That caddy is a good idea, I always have trouble keeping up with remotes. Could also have a pocket to keep current book or mag in. Can't deside if I like the eagle or Santa the best, but they are all great.

    They're all wonderful. I think I like the Santa one most. Although the applique makes my heart sing, too!

    I'm in love with the "brown" quilt but i like how you did the stair stepped blocks on the kitty quilt. I'm about to make a rag quilt. now must think of another fabric to add so I can do that. Hmmmm.

    I love the Christmas one, but they are all really pretty. I don't want to say nice job, because I don't think quilters consider quilting a job, and I don't want to say nice work, because most quilters don't think it's work, it's pleasure. So how about beautiful projects. We need to find better descriptions for these pleasure projects! Thanks for sharing your pictures.

    remote caddy

    I think you are are referring to the remote caddy (in green on the arm of the sofa)...if so, I did not use a pattern. I used the full width of the fabric, and cut 2 pieces(one for the front and one for the backing) the the width of the caddy at 12 inches. 40x12 inches. Then I cut a piece 8 inches by 12 inches for the first pocket at the bottom. Pocket the remote is in is 5" by 8".

    you can determine the size of the pockets yourself. Maybe you want two pockets the same width and depth across your caddy or maybe you need three pockets...whatever suits you can be done.

    As seen in the photo, the caddy drapes over the arm of the chair and the rest is tucked under the cushion of the chair (sofa) to keep it in place.

    Everyone I made this for said they loved it and it keeps the remote where they can find it at all times. I hope your try it.

    Beautiful! I love the caddy, if I'd had one of those I probably wouldn't have lost the darn remote to the fan!
