I think this has been my most productive year that I had quilring. Last January I decided to make each of our neices and nephew's children, on my husbands side, a flannel quilt. At that time was a total of 12 quilts.
My first 3 quilts were for sisters. So I decided to make them the same design, all snowmen, just different colors.
First one was "Blue" for the youngest of the sisters, Angelina.
Then I made one green, for the oldest sister, Noel.
Last but not least was a red one for the middle sister Gracie. They were all quilted in an all over stipple patters
My next 2 were also for sisters. I wanted to do something different, but yet keep them alike. So I came up with this pattern.
The top, pink backing, for Bella and the bottom, blue backing for Adriana. These were both quilted in all over flowers.
Then for their 2 brothers...
I also wanted them alike but yet different. So I made different patterns with the same fabric.
One has a dark brown binding and one a green binding.
They are Ricko's and Cobie's.
These were quilted in an all over stipple pattern.
HAH! No problem...I had 7 of the 12 quilts finished in 5 months. I thought that was good. At this rate I would be done before December.
Summer came, my room got built.
(which I am totally excited with)
Field trips with the Guild, made two T-Shirt quilts and a "Delectable Mountain quilt with the guild.
Why, it was September before I know it. I had to get back on track.
Next was a little boys quilt for Xander. I found the cutest car and truck flannel.
I did the back of his with the left over fabric and quilted it in an all over stipple pattern
Next were his 2 older brothers.
I did them in Bear, Deer, Elk prints. First one for Kalub, his has a black binding.
The second for Gavin, his is brown binding.
These 2 were quilted in an all over oak leaf pattern.
Ah, almost done, just 2 more boys to make.
I got the camo fabric with Hummers in.
First one is for Santana
And the second and last was for his little brother Logan.
Ah, I got them all finished right after Thanksgiving. I was so pleased to be ahead of it all and get them in the mail early. They were all headed to up state Pennsylvania.
Then we got a call from our niece that had the three girls (the first 3 quilts I made)
She told us how her and her husband were going to become foster parents to a little girl. They were to get her on the 14th.
UGH! I NEED ANOTHER FLANNEL QUILT!
I can't send one to each of the other girls and not her. Quickly, I dug into my stash. But got it done! I made the same design as the others, even found snowmen.
So, here is hers:
I can proudly say they were mailed and everyone got their quilts yesterday.
(I waited to post thus till they got them, after all that, I still wanted to surprise them all)
(I also made 4 other quilts including a T-shirt quilt, 5 table toppers, pillowcases, a walker tote, a large tote bag and 2 wallhangings.
AND I enjoyed making each)
Yesterday I baked cookies all day! Today I have a few more batches to make. Then I can pass my trays around tomorrow. I will then officially be ready for Christmas.
Just have to make my Christmas Turkey.
