Happy New Year!!!! Hope you all had a wonderful and safe holiday. Most of us are socked in with the cold. I know, I know who am I to complain about cold when I live in Florida. Well, for us it is pretty nippy but I really am enjoying snuggling under my quilts in front of the fire. We don’t get to do that much here and this past week I have spent many an hour doing just that – which is just fine for now.
I gave several quilts to my great nieces and nephew for Christmas just in time for them to snuggle under as the storms go through PA. I wasn’t able to share them before as I didn’t want to risk anyone seeing them before they were given but I thought I would share them with you now.
This is the first one I made. I kind of did this one backwards as I found the fabric for the back first. One of my great nieces loves turtles so I started out with the beautiful turtle fabric for the back and then designed the front to go with it.
The next one I did was for my other great-niece who loves Paris. I used fabric that I had bought as a kit years ago and has been in my stash since waiting to become a quilt. I teased my husband that I knew all those years ago that I would have a great-niece who loved Paris and would need to make her a quilt, which is why I have been moving this fabric around from PA, to Virginia and now Florida. 🙂
The last one I made was for my great-nephew who loves to fish. This was actually made out of two panels from two different designers. I used one full panel and used parts of the second one. I love how they blended together.It was a lot of fun designing and making these cuties their quilts. I hope they keep them warm and snuggly for many winters to come.
I hope you enjoyed your holiday and are excited about the year to come. I have gotten some other projects from my stash done in the last couple of weeks, which puts me ahead of last year already so I am on a roll. What are you working on? Don’t forget to share. We all love to be inspired and encouraged by other quilters.
Have a great week. Trish
