Well worn quilts….

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!
