Christmas Quilts

In addition to the bags and wallets I made for Christmas, I also managed to get a few quilts done in the last two months.

My mother pieced and did the binding on this quilt for my Aunt Sally. I did the quilting on it for her. It was all free-hand work.

My mother also did the piecing and binding on this quilt for my Aunt Wendy. I used a pantograph pattern for the quilting.

My mother and I also teamed up to complete a quilt for my sister, Carrie. The pattern is Radio Way by Jaybird Quilts and the printed fabrics were a jelly roll from a designer named MoMo and her "It's a Hoot" line produced by Moda fabrics. I especially love the backing on this quilt. I was inspired by Jan over at Janice Elaine Sews. She always does something special on her quilt backs and I had enough left over strips of fabric to bring a touch of the quilt front to the back. I used a pantograph pattern for the quilt design.

Now that Christmas is over, I can start on Bonnie Hunter's Grand Illusion Mystery Quilt!
