    Three down, seven more to go, someone one hit the pause button!!

    The Bronco quilt goes to Angel, he is such a sweetie, and at times he gets into trouble with the misses, so I made him his favorite team and a way to keep warm when he is banished to the couch! I hate working with fleece but I think it turned out alright.

    The guitar one I designed for my friend Melvin, he loves guitars and likes blue, so I drew out a guitar, or well what I thought looked like one. LOL I think it turned out rather nice, it is going to be hard to give it to him cause it is very pretty, the photo does not do it justice.

    The last one is for Rick, he is going through some hard times, and he enjoys cars so I thought I would put this one together for him.
    These quilts are for my guys who I adore and think the world of. now I have three more motocross ones to make and four others for family members.

    What a great heart you have. I particulaly like your guitar applique as you have given it a special touch with "realistic" batik marbled fabrics and the perfect quilting for creating your guitar strings. I believe you are going to make all the people on your holiday list very happy and warm because of your efforts.

    Aw thanks that is quite the compliment!! I gave my guys their quilts on Wednesday and they LOVED them! Made me feel so good to see their reactions to what I had made just for them individually.
