Christy's Quilt (FOR SALE)

My daughter, Christy, made this fun, bright quilt.  I added my "touch" to it with the quilting.

She would like to sell it to help pre-fund a vacation she would like to go on with her husband.  Let me know if you would like more information.

The quilting design is called Contempo.

The thread is a bright orange.

The backing is a very plush, SewBatik flannel.  Snuggly soft!

My Dad's Birthday Quilt

My dad turned 77 last week.  He was also recently diagnosed with an aggressive form of bladder cancer.  In my quilt ministry, I give quilts to others who have cancer or other illnesses.  But this is too close to home!  Still, one of my first thoughts after the shock wore off was to make him a quilt.  He starts chemo and radiation next month after they perform a second biopsy on him.  He NEEDS a quilt.

He has a great, positive attitude and I know lots of people are praying for complete healing...if that is God's will.  If you have found this blog, Dad, I love you and know you are a fighter.  I am praying for you.

So here is the quilt I made for him...

Sister's Birthday Quilt

My sister has been fixing up her house after a divorce last year.  I thought she needed a new quilt for her "new" bedroom.  I gave it to her early...her birthday isn't until 8/29.  It looked perfect in her room!

I pieced the backing out of leftover fabric.

My nephew, Arun, loved the quilt, too.

Another Cute Grandbaby Quilt

Kathe is so anxious for her first grandchild.  We are anxious to hear the good news.  But Kathe has been busy making quilts for the little one...

This adorable animal print is great for a baby quilt!

Used the Contempo pantograph.
