I think I have some pics loaded and will explain. I started quilting as a teenager and never finished a thing... then I started a quilt for someone having a baby... did a stitched one instead for them, but had this bug jar quilt so when my son was born I thought "how perfect, it's kinda a boys quilt, I'll do it for him". Some 14/15 years later, I finished...no picture yet of his...I will do soon. My nephew loved the quilting and the fabric so I took the stash I had left and made him a quilt (just squares, not really following a pattern). Make one for one nephew, have to make one for all the nieces and nephews. Now they already each received a stitched or crocheted quilt as a baby; and believe it or not, when my sister had a house fire a couple years ago and lost their entire house, those quilts survived....but then she adopted an 8 year old from China...too old for a baby quilt, so along came the next one...I have a couple more to do but I'm making progress.
Anyway, here are some pictures:This is the back of Brennen's...love the dragon fly - it matches the dragonfly border pictured below - the front of his quilt.
The first quilt for Jordan (my son) and this among a couple other works in progress (WIP) have created a quilt monster in my sewing room (or the purple passion room to my honey - not because of passion in that room, mind you, but because it has lilac walls, furniture that I sponge painted over white with lilacs and greys, darker lilac carpet, white eyelet curtians and some day a quilt with purples!) So I lapse off often, into other conversations, those who know me are used to it. Anyway...these are Amira's - my niece who was 8 upon her arrival here to us...it's flannel and so cozy!
The pattern for this was "Yellow Brick Road" and SO easy! I am now starting another one for my husband, flannel out of Moda "Trail Adventures" fabric - although I am searching for some additional fabric in that line and it's about 3 years old (yes, I've had it that long and am just getting to it...you know how these things go).
Well, I want to stitch some tonight. Figuring this out took a little more time than I thought and after a very full week at work, needle to thread is just what I need until it's time to sleep. I have other pics loaded and will post more - I will get some stitching pics in here too!
Thanks for all the followers I have so far - and for the words of encouragement - don't give up on me before I figure this all out!!
Stitch Happy! Sherry :>)
