As I get ready to start hand-quilting Amy’s wedding quilt, I have been thinking about all the quilts that I have tucked away. I quilted non- stop for many years and have a stack of quilts to prove it! I hand-quilted everything I made back then and enjoyed the process as much as the finished product. Here are a few quilts from the past that were stitched with love for my kids!
This is a quilt I made for my daughter, Kelly for her 10th birthday. The circles on the border are hand-appliqued. I hand-quilted random sized circles on it. It is still one of my favourites! It is very well used so I have put it away for safe keeping!
Every boy should have a sailboat quilt…or two!! These two quilts belong to my son, Chad.
Of course when you quilt for a hobby, you end up with lots of scraps! I was able to use up a few of those scraps when I made this Sunbonnet Sue quilt for my daughter, Courtney.
When Kelly was 7 or 8 she went through a “purple phase” AND a “unicorn phase”! I made her this wallhanging to celebrate both phases in her young life!
