Quilts...
« on: June 02, 2016, 07:49:35 PM »

Will try to get new pictures soon, I'm finishing up 3 quilts, one is a birthday gift for my sister.  No picture of my sister's quilt, yet, hopefully soon.

Finishing up the horse quilt and kitty quilt.  Working on a patriotic quilt.
Pics during work of these two, will try to get finished ones soon.  [Will try to remember to take my camera to guild on Monday where maybe someone can help me take a picture or I can lay it on a table there or something.

This one is in the works, the patriotic quilt, I have most of the pieces cut and have ordered two more fabrics to fill in.
[Trying out a couple fabrics from my stash, will probably use one for binding or maybe a border, we'll see when I get that far.]

Looks like these two fabrics will be the start of a quilt for Diane's new grand baby coming in the fall; will need to pick a couple more to go with.

I like that horses quilt.  I may have to check to see what the 10 year old adopted "brother" may like, when I get the new grandson one in the fall.  I think it would be nice to give one to him too, to let him know how important he is to me, as well as the new grandson.  This poor boy has had a really rough life, and I want him to know how much we all love him, too.

So, I'll be watching!!

And, I've made and sold all these little mug rugs (been selling them on a FB page for people who buy and sell crystals and stones and such, so also selling them as mini grid mats).

We can certainly do up a kid sized lap quilt for "brother" come fall, find out what he likes and we'll make it special for him.

Thank you.   

The butterflies in the elephant fabrics are purple and pink and orange I think, but will have to take a closer look and see what may go to add a splash of color.

And, these quilts are finished and available, anytime.

The stripe quilt was made with fabrics I got from a FB group.
The pink one is Quest for a Cure fabrics from Northcott fabrics, their Stonehenge line of pinks.
And, the red, black and white floral.

I'm going to leave you with these for awhile, as I'm going to watch a 1/2 hour show, then go do chore and then watch my other half-hour show.   Then, supper.

Thank you very much.
I'm better at piecing the tops than I am at the actual quilting part, but I'll stick with doing it myself in plain jane fashion over paying someone else to do, I like that my quilts are mine from start to finish.  [I've only ever had one quilted by someone else, and it was early on in my sewing and bigger than I usually make.]

Well I may need one made towards the end of the year but promise to give you plenty of notice.

My sister and her partner have been talking about planning a baby towards the end of the year, which will make me the proudest uncle going around and will probably bring me to tears lol

I know the postage will be expensive but Im not fussed about that :)

And I can swear, you will not be disappointed!!  I can't even remember how many I've gotten, and I love each one! 

And this sounds like exciting news, Ryan!  Can't wait for any updates you learn about!   ;)
