And here she is, in all her glory. Looking at it today, I realized that I really do like this design, just not the execution. It is not even close to my style today, but who knows, maybe it will be in another ten years?
Here is a little closer view of the quilting. Mom hand quilted this, bless her. This quilt is about 81" by 91". I just don't have the patience for that kind of thing right now, but I'm glad she did.
Up next we have the quilt I made when I was pregnant with Wyatt. For some reason, I thought it would be a good idea to find out what we were having but not tell anyone else but my parents. But, I made this at my parents' house when we were there for Christmas, forgetting that my brother and sister and their families would then see it. Smart. So naturally they figured out we were having a boy, but I was only a month away from having him, so my game was fun for a little while anyway. It's about a 36" square.
Had I been paying any attention at all to what I was doing, I might have fussy cut those squares so there was actually a focal point in them instead of this:

The final quilt on our tour today is the one I made for my middle son. Actually it basically matches the quilt I made for my oldest son except for the backing and a few fabrics. And when I say "I" made them, I really mean I made the tops and Mom quilted and bound them. She's swell like that. They are both about 61" by 81".
Sew, Mama, Sew because I could use their "shop by color" feature.
Y'all are lucky you are even getting these pictures. Look at what was terrorizing me while I was trying to work:
|He looks innocent, doesn't he?|
