Okay so this will be the first projects I post. I made these quilts also with my grandma (my crafting partner). They were xmas gifts for my daughters, nieces, nephew and grandmother. Also One I made for my SIL for her Bday.

Tab's (My SIL) This one was made COMPLETELY out of thrift store finds(except thread). Maybe cost me $15 after thread. Gotta love the thrift shops!!


Aspen's Quilt (My 7 year old Daughter)Alot of thrift shop fabric that I had piling up for eventually a quilt.Only bought backing.




Kylie's Quilt (My 2 year old Daughter)She loves her Monkmeys (that's not a typo, that's what she calls them)





My grandmother's ( I really do wish I had got a pic of the front of this one. It's gold in the center. then wrapped with the purple Fabric, then gold and the purple you see. The crushed velvet is the back.)(Only bought the backing for this one too!)


Leslie's (My 7 year old Niece)(Sorry, I had to get quik pics of the next 3 due to dying batteries, Sooo..it's not centered real well)I will see if I cant get better pics later)(Only backing for this one too)


Nikkolette's (3 Year old Niece)I also made her a banana out of the yellow fleece that lines this.To go with the monkey theme


Harlee's(My 4 mo. old niece)I made this one out of a few recieving blankets I had and I bought the cherry fabric and backing which said "I love mommy, I love daddy"


Conner's (My 11 mo. old nephew)




Anywho..SO there's my start. I told you it was Pict. Fat. Cheesy

I like the purple ones, they look so fancy.  Your grandma looks quite pleased with hers.   I also like the football one.  I'm a little leery of rag quilts, even though I've heard they are pretty easy, but I'm afraid mine would fall to bits.

They all look very nice, although the purples are my favorite.

Thank You. The Purple ones are my favs too. The rag ruilts are really easy and wont fall apart as long as you dont snip the seam when you rag them..I never snipped the seem, but I did snip a hole in the fabric..I had to sew it back up..Oh well. I used some thinner fabric on the brown and blue one (the one I snipped fabric on) but I used fleece on the football one and didnt have any problems.. Plus it came out soooo soft and warm. I still have more to make this year. A graduation quilt and a scrapbook quilt. SO I'll post more pics when I get them up.
