In the days leading up to Christmas, I thought it would be fun to share with you the quilts I am giving to my family members. Not all of these quilt tops were pieced in 2016. They were languishing in a box waiting to be quilted. This was the year it happened. Starting this past Spring, each month I sent a couple of quilt tops to my machine quilter to be finished. It took over six months, but now all these quilt tops have been turned into usable quilts that I hope my family members will enjoy. A couple of the quilts are bed sized, but most of them are more lap sized quilts, which I think is a good size for a gift quilt. I tried to match up the quilts to the recipient's taste, and hope I got it right! I suppose they can trade amongst each other if they don't like the one they got!
The first one shown above is called Memory, a pattern by Monique Dillard.
Here is another red and blue quilt called Looking Glass, a pattern by Miss Rosie's Quilt Co.
The bindings have gone speedier than I had thought they would, which a lucky thing, because I sure have left it until the last minute!
Hope you all had a good weekend. I spent part of mine in bed with a book, as I came down with a cold. I am feeling better now, and need to get cracking on wrapping all my gifts. I got a great deal at Joann's on gift bags for all these quilt. The large size gift bags I needed are 60% off, which made a $7 bag $2.80! That made me happy. If you need Christmas gift bags, the Joann's near me had a great selection yesterday, so yours may as well.
