It's All About the Quilts

Did I ever mention that I have a lot of strip sets?   Jelly rolls?   Whatever name they go by, I have em.   And alot of them.   Last time I counted, and that was months ago, I had 189 sets/rolls.   Yes, it is an addiction.  So I've decided to try to reduce the number and get some quilts made from these for the nursing homes.  I'm going to do at least one a month.   The above picture is the one I made for the month of April.   And it is quilted and bound and ready to go.

Next I quilted a top for my friend Peggy.   She is not allowing herself to buy any fabric, but to only use what she has on hand.   This quilt is really pretty, don't you think?   All from scraps.

My daughter has a friend who is expecting triplets.  She was told there were two girls and a boy and she wanted to go with a rock and roll theme.   I went on line and found the cutest fabric here.  It came in both blue and pink so I placed my order.  The very next day Brooke called my daughter and said, "wait - they found it's two girls and one boy!"  Wow, I called equilter and they had not yet shipped my order so I was able to get it changed.   These are the quilts we gave to her.

I embroidered their initials into the corner squares.  You know, they must know which one is for which one!
The next photos, show the backs of the quilts.

 I pieced in strips of the colors on the front.   They turned out really cute and Brooke loves them.

Ok, that's it for now.   Off to quilt some more!
