I love Weddings!!!

I just love weddings - Especially family weddings. And granddaughters are probably just as fun as daughters and not quite as much work. All I had to do was quilt for about a month solid. It was a lot of work, but a lot of fun.

This is granddaughter #l's quilt. It is very graphic and bold and modern. Quite matches the girl. She is the oldest and the first to be married - on Friday.

Since the bride loves purple, I put purple on the back and the flowers and leaves and swirls showed up quite well.

Granddaughter #2 was married on Saturday. It was quite the week-end, but at least family that had to travel from out of town got to attend both weddings with only one trip. It was well worth the effort and enjoyed by all.

Granddaughter #2's quilt is more traditional, but just as colorful and fun. She really loved it. I had so much fun quilting this one.

I'm sure they will have many cozy evenings cuddling under the quilt! I love you both!

More Christmas

Way Past Christmas Time

I know it is way past Christmas Time, but I did want to post a couple of pictures so you could see what I worked on in December.

I am working on a quilt for my daughter, and it is taking way more time than I thought it would. (Why do we always do that to ourselves. Anyway, I had to take it off in order to get to the Christmas gifts.) I'll post more pictures after I finish it up.>

This is a quilt that my youngest daughter made for her husband's Grandmother. We were both pretty proud of her efforts. It is her first quilt (other than a baby quilt). Grandma really liked it.

This is an adaptation of the same quilt that I made for my brother and his wife for Christmas. I quilted all over holly and berries.

Here is a fun quilt made from a panel. It was for my husband's brother and his family. I love Christmas and snowmen!!! Don't you!
