I’ve got three, three quilts going….ah, hah, hah, hah

Threeeeee quilts!

The first one is the one for my aunt-in-law. I’ve got the whole top done already, so I just need to buy a bolt of white flannel and the backing fabric for that one. Then I can finish it off.

My mother-in-law’s quilt changed. I sewed together some disappearing 9 patches (like she wanted) but it just did not look good. At all. So, I enlisted my husband and we changed both the pattern and added (and took away) some fabrics from her original choices.

So, her quilt now has:

And we chose the Falling Charms pattern from Jenny Doan. This looks sooooo much better than the 9 patch with the colors we added and took away. I’m using the Kona Snow as the border around the charms, and I’ll probably add a navy blue border once it’s finished. Not quite sure what I’m going to do for the backing or binding. This one will be about 72″ x 84″ when I get done (minus the border if I do it). That’s 12 blocks wide by 13 blocks down (a block being the charm with the border on two sides).

Then, we went to Florida in July, and I offered to make my Mom two quilts. She’s still thinking about the queen size one she wants, so I’ll talk about the twin size one I’m making for her now. Her pattern is just a simple patchwork, which makes it a lot easier and faster. I cut 5.5″ squares for hers.

Her fabrics are:

And that’s it for now! I’ve got a lot of sewing to do!
