I figured now was the perfect time to post about the quilts I made for my 4 grandkids back in December of 2012 (2 boys — Mason and Easton and 2 girls — Blake and Tatum). Now is the perfect time to post because I just pulled these pictures out because I am going to be making a few more and I needed to refer to the picture for guidance! Continue reading →
I took on this enormous project as my 14th quilt (in 2004), just a few couple of years after I made my very first one. When you look at this quilt, you might not think it looks like an enormous undertaking, but considering this was the first time I tackled a quilt without having a step-by-step pattern to follow.

While I have been jumping around a little bit, I am trying to post my quilts in the order that I made them (somewhat)… This was the 3rd quilt I made (in case you missed them, the first one was a Simple Rail Fence and the second was a super-hard quilt called Flying Home).
Remember the memory bears I posted about awhile back? They were made from grandma’s clothes. It was that grandma I made this quilt for. She seemed so excited when I started quilted I immediately wanted to make something for her so I chose this quilt and worked hard on it to get it done in time to be a birthday gift.
