In November/December, I was determined to finish a few Christmas gifts for people back home. Yes, in the midst of prepping for an international move. 'Cause I'm just crazy like that. Still, I managed! Two lap quilts & a wall hanging. Whew!
The two lap quilts started off as Sister's Ten BOM quilts, but bed quilts for my boys got in the way of finishing the BOM blocks, so I had to improvise in order to finish these. The pieced blocks are from the BOM, the background fabrics are whatever I had in my stash that worked and the settings/quilting on each were designed with the recipient in mind.
|Sometimes Short on Spoons, done in purples for Chiari Malformation Awareness|
machine quilted with spoons and zig zags/zippers
|Not the Old Rugged Cross, done in red (off)white & blue, for a patriotic feel|
machine echo quilted to show off the cross design
|Nothing Negative About It, wall hanging for my grandparents, story coming later|
this was done to resemble a 35 mm negative, with the colors in the blocks reversed
(lights where the darks would go, darks where the lights would go)
