What a lovely way to commemorate your love for your family.  And what lovely quilts.  Thank you so much for sharing.

How fun!  Looks like it is well-loved, and it should be!  My daughter would love something like this.

I like it - and apparently so does your kitty.  Tee hee!  I have a 4-footed quality tester, too.  You can always tell when you've done it right - they sit in the middle of it.

That's so super cute!  And the photos are not so bad.  LOL!  I like the pattern a lot.

Very pretty!  Definitely something I will have to try in the future...  Thank you for posting!
96  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Stack & Whack 45 degree quilt for Niece - Updated! on: January 21, 2010 10:18:15 AM
This was supposed to be a Christmas gift - I'm just now finishing it up...  I still have to bind it...  And take pics of the back.  BUT - it's the first time I've done the 45 degree one.  It didn't come out perfect, but it still turned out pretty...

This is the front of the quilt.  The pink is actually a HOT bubblegum color.  My niece LOVES pink, and currently is into the idea that she will be the next hot American Idol (she's 6).  The yellow print on the quilt is of limos, tv's, scripts, director's chairs, cameras and the like...

Another pic of the front of the quilt...  It's actually fairly square, and is about 5.5' long and wide.

97  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / First quilted baby blanket... on: January 21, 2010 09:39:04 AM
I'm relatively new to quilting, but have found that it's so amazingly comforting to me - and relaxes me as well...  Almost as much as cooking (which is saying a lot!).  Here was my first on-my-own quilt that I did recently...

I know that it's off-kilter on the back.  I wasn't really going for an actual zig-zag pattern, I wanted something that was going to be interesting and draw the eye of the baby - something she could constantly find new things about...

  This is the first "official" baby quilt I've done.  A co-worker's sister-in-law had a super-preemie baby girl, so everyone got together to help with getting things for them.  I went through all my baby fabric, and found both cotton shirting and cotton brushed flannel, and strip-quilted...  this is also the first strip quilt I've ever done.  

 A close-up of the front of the quilt...

  I tied the outside of the quilt, and I hand-sewed around the two outer rectangles for stability.  The ties are ribbons, that have been sewn through the quilt, and then sewn together to prevent little fingers from untying them.

This is the back of the quilt.  I decided one side would be completely cotton shirting, and the other side would be flannel.  

 Close-up of the flannel side.  I had been making fashion diaper covers, but when that venture really didn't do well, I decided instead to use the fabric for quilting.

This is just incredible.  How thoughtful and beautiful the whole idea is.  I love it!   Cheesy
