In, what was a moment of deep boredom, I found a pattern
on-line for a baby quilt. I knew I had some rather bright child-themed
material, so I made a baby quilt with it, and then donated it to the Giving
Tree Ministry at church for a pregnancy crisis center. I guess it's not the
best quality photo, but I'm sure you get the idea. )
Also, I started to make more
baby quilts (Sept, 2004) for people I know. The second and consecutive
photos will be of those quilts as I complete them (baby animals print, Pooh
prints, bold butterflies print).
Here is Tom's quilt all finished!
And here is Joe3's quilt completed!
And last, but certainly not least,
here is my bed quilt that I completed before the baby quilt
pictured above. If you're wondering how long these quilts took to
make...most of the big ones took nearly a year, but that was because they were
"quilt block of the month" quilts. The quilting (fluffing)
took months, because I did it in my spare time by hand, not machine.
Unfortunately, the quilt work cannot be seen on these photos.
Yes, I'm still quilting! I helped make a quilt top for an
auction item for the band. I finally finished my holiday quilt, and I made the
last for my mother for Christmas. So...here are the newest quilts:
I used my Christmas money to make a type of quilt I've been
wanting to try for awhile. It's Amish inspired, though not a true Amish
quilt....it's more like a sampler.
Then I made another baby quilt, trying some new patterns:
This is the back...
This is the front...
Next, I decided to make a crazy quilt...well, yeah, sort
of...to use some scraps
This one, I call "King of the Jungle"...look to
see if you can tell why!
