Hello Fellow Followers,
I hope everyone, had a wonderful Christmas and you received many blessings. I want to share with you all some special gifts that I made for my family.
The first quilt that I made was for my grandfather, it was made with my grandma’s jeans. It was a simple square on square quilt, with hues of blues and greens mixed together to wrap him in a warm hug, on those chilly winter days. I wanted him to know how much we love him and to give him a special memory of my grandma.
The second memory quilt I made was for my sister, it was made with all the pretty bright shirts that my grandmother would wear. A lot of them have special memories, like shirts she would wear at Christmas along with her favorite every day shirts. I made the square on square in a pixilated heart design. Then framed it with tan shirts, I top quilted free flowing feathers and added special words like, Faith and Love in the design, It turned out beautifully.
The next gift was for my parents, I took the pattern from Sew Fresh Quilts called Forest Friends and made a table runner. The blocks where made up with a bobcat,cougar,blue jay and a red cardinal along with trees and mountains. I then did a mix of free motion quilting with feathers, ribbon candy, swirls and pebbling and added there last name on one edge. It turned out fantastic, I hope you all enjoy the pictures as much as I did making these special gifts.
Until next time have a Sew Happy Day!!
