2017 Quilts

I can't believe it has been so long since I posted here! I'm still quilting and here are some things I made earlier this year. The first one is a quilt top made for Quilts of Valor. I've wanted to do this for a long time. The white stars are actually the same size. I didn't have a place to hang it so you could see it that way.

Next is a quilt that I made for my younger granddaughter. Yes, I was very slow at getting this one completed. She got it when she turned 8 months old. It's special because she has an older sister and the pattern is called "Sisters Forever". I had some fabric that showed 2 sisters together in a variety of poses (likely the print design comes from a vintage sewing pattern). It's larger than what I would normally have made as a baby quilt, but with the odd layout of the blocks, I didn't want to try to adjust the size.

I also made a tied blanket with fleece fabric for one of my triplet grandsons. I'll look back to find a picture of it to add later.

We had a big family gathering here for the week of the solar eclipse. We had a total solar eclipse here and it was fantastic! A special time because we all live in different states and don't get the chance to be together very often.

That wraps up most of my news! I'll certainly post something sooner next time. I hope everyone had a good summer.
