    Quilt Sharing ...Day 3

    Happy Wednesday Everyone!! These are again a mix of tops...if you thought you had UFO's never fear...mine will make you feel better! I will be quilting up a storm this winter! How do you store your UFO's? Mine go on a hanger with the backing. On with the show....

    First one is a Christmas panel quilt. If anyone saw my apron thread I made my 17 year old a matching apron and pot holder from the left overs. She will most likely take this quilt once its quilted!

    Next, I'm the queen of over collecting fabric. One of my twins Kyle loves Halloween, I made him a Halloween quilt (not shown, he has it) but I had all these left over bricks so I made another quilt. I wanted to try prairie points as well so I added them.

    Next, when my youngest Abby was born last of 5 I went nuts with making her clothes and other stuff. I found this fabric on ebay and intended on making her stuff with it. As a true quilter I hordered it for years till she outgrew it. I decided to make a quilt with. Not sure who will get it yet. I love love toile prints.

    Next, I always wanted to try a braid quilt. I had this tattoo fabric...it's a little bit of a dark theme so I thought I'd put a soft touch on it. I bought a book..worst book and introductions ever!! Thank goodness I've been quilting for over 16 years so I got through it.

    Last quilt was made for my oldest son Zachary. It's the second quilt I've made him and I do need to get it quilted. Hopefully by Christmas.

    Once again, beautiful work. What I like about the toile quilt is that you don't over-complicate things. It's a simple layout, yet the design complements the Disney fabric very well. Well done!

    In fact, all of them are well done.

    There's nothing more directly linked to who we are than the fabric that we make.

        These are all great tops! You are a very versatile quilter, Rachel. I love the last one especially. I share your love of toile fabric. I try to work it in as often as possible.

          Love them all, especially the Christmas one! I had to look up toile to find out what it was because I really like the look of it.
