A Quilt for Ivy Jewel

oops... can't show a picture of this one...

Oh, Mandy... I need your address please!!

Joey's Birthday Quilt: Brown Bear, Brown Bear...

Joseph loved this book when he was younger (and he still likes it now).  I bought this fabric, I think, two year ago.  I scrambled and scrambled trying to think of ways to use it.  Finally I had an idea!

And the finished product.  Oh, I need to take a picture of the back too!  It's so cute!

UFO: Baby Quilt

This is a quilt I started a few years ago.  I was trying a new technique.  It was all done except for the sashing.  Now it just needs to be sandwiched and quilted :)

Finishing UFOs: Quilting

So making Avery's quilt inspired me to finish some UnFinishedObjects :)

This is a quilt top I started making for my Great Aunt Louise.  I hadn't finished it yet when Aunt Louise's health started rapidly failing.  I just put it aside knowing that I would know when I was ready to finish it. 

She was so very special to me and I loved her a lot.  I will finish this quilt and always think of her -- especially when I use it.

A "My Favorite Things" quilt for my nephew...

The last time we were visiting with Tony's sister Anitra and her son she was telling me some of Avery's favorite things.  I made a mental note and then had this smashing idea:  I would make him a fun quilt using fabrics of his "favorite things"!

Most of the fabrics are self-explanatory except maybe the gold and black border.  You see, Avery is a Vandy fan!  LOL

...and the back:

I can't wait to see his face -- I hope he loves it!!

This was all machine pieced and quilted.  I used two layers of Killington flannel instead of traditional batting.
