One More "Just Because" Quilt

Since the 10th birthday quilts have all been completed, I needed to get back to the little surprise ones for my children. This one landed on the doorstep of daughter Wendy in Colorado today so guess I am safe in posting a picture now. Hope it will brighten her home and make her think of Iowa when she uses it. Last, but not least, the youngest will have to wait a bit for his, as the quilting supplies are put up for a few weeks. I am sure I will get the urge to stitch again soon!

Last of the 10 Year Birthday Quilts

Now for the next give away but not until June 3rd. Colton is the last of 7 grandchildren to turn 10 and he is anxiously awaiting his Iowa State quilt. I think I am safe in putting a preview picture out here because Colton is only into Nintendo DS and not the internet yet! Hope he likes it.

Just A Rocking Chair Quilt

I just finished binding this small lap size quilt that will be perfect for the back of my antique rocking chair. Make one, keep it, make another one..give it away. Time to give again because my house is overflowing with quilts!

Kendall & His 10 Year Quilt

All wrapped up in his train quilt, he was happy as could be at his 10th birthday party.

Megan & Her 10 Year Quilt

What a sweetie snuggled under her new quilt. The only thing missing is her NaNa hugs.

Off to the Quilter for Next 10th Birthday Celebration

This one is for Kendall, whose birthday is March 25th. It is actually the very same pattern as the orange and pink quilt that I finished for Megan a few weeks ago. Kendall has always been a train lover so hope he will like to snuggle down under this one. Well back to the cutting board as I must complete quilt # 3 in another few weeks...............

Bricks and Stepping Stones

Just finished another easy scrap pattern called Bricks and Stepping Stones. It is a free download on this website. I absolutely love scrap quilts as they remind me so much of many old quilts I have seen. This one is very fast and would be a great one to teach the grandchildren! A terrific way to use up those small scraps.
