    I needed Christmas presents for two gr-granddaughters and my young grandson....didn't have much money so went looking through my UFOs and found a log cabin that would work for my 6 yr. old g-gd. One 4-patch for the 3 yr. old g-gd and sail boat for 18 mo.old gs

    Wow- what a find! They turned out gorgeous. I hope I don't end up with 15 year old UFOs.. Right now I have a 4 year old one.

    If you quilt long enough you just might find some 15-yr-olds. :-)

    When I got the out of storage bins, they were all so plain in there unfinished state. Just took a couple yards of new fabric and some appliques to dress them up a little.

    I still have been able to give them to the kids, but soon I hope.

    AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME!!!!!! I am in love with the sailboat quilt!!!!! Gives me incentive to make one of a larger size for my grandson's bed (age 10).
    The log cabin with the hearts would be perfect for my granddaughter = she is his twin. The color is perfect for her also!

    Thank you all. It was fun to finish these. I did all the appliuqes with heat and bond and some thin like raw edge applique.

    Guess I'm going to have to make a trip to KC to deliver them...thought some of the family would be down last month...but NO!
