    Quilt Sharing...Day 5

    Good Morning/Afternoon. I'm in TX and slept in. Sorry for the later reply. Here's some oldies but goodies!! On with the show!

    First, I did this quilt for my granddaughter. It's reversible pink minnie on one side and red on the other. I mixed cotton and flannels. Scalloped the edges.

    Next, a scrap quilt. This was a 21/2 inch square swap. Abby stole this one as well...I think she's a quilt hoarder...lol. My son Brandon peeking over the top.

    These three are memory quilts, all on my mothers side. My grandmother, uncle and cousin. My grandma and Uncle was due to illness, my cousin was 46 due to alcoholism. each was a special person. I made my grandmothers for my mom...blue, my uncle for my aunt ...pastels, and my cousin for my aunt, my moms sister..red ..sorry its sideways.

    Next, I made this for my oldest daughter for her 18th birthday, shes 26 now. She put it on the wall for years...took me forever to convince her to use it please!!!

        Love them. It is great how your kids appreciate them. My daughter appreciates hers and so does her hubby and kids. And they have gotten tons of quilts because my daughter quilts as does her mother-in-law so they are in sore need of a quilt ladder I think.

              I was lucky enough to find a fantastic ladder at flea market. $25 made super well!! Thanks! I think when kids grow up with seeing the work put in they have a different appreciation.

                Rachel, each of your quilts is a work of beauty! I love the Flip Flop quilt. It brought back memories of my dear friend Sherry. She had a notebook filled with quilts she wanted made. One was a flip flop quilt for her brother. Melinda is still working on those quilts for her. I've asked to help, but she says no. I think it's helping her deal with Sherry's loss.

                My oldest son started quilt ladders. They're together and need sanding and painting. I guess with him leaving tomorrow- I'll be taking them out with the bulk trash in a couple of weeks. I can't deal with the dust from sanding and Mike's NOT going to do wood work (according to him). I'll be out $30 for the wasted wood.

                  Oh, you should put them on offer up, someone I bet would welcome the materials!! Thanks for your compliments. I saw the flip flop design in magazine. They used suns instead of flip flops. I liked the gradual effect of the color blocks. I do that a lot...modify a pattern I see and run with it

                    Katrina, don't rush it to the trash too fast. You never know when he may be back. The fantasy may disappear without his support system.

                      Beautiful! I had to smile at the flip-flops. Since we take ours off in the house I would be worried that it would turn into a rug over here. lol

                          Your memory quilts really are nice! Including all the photos makes them extra special to the recipients. The flip flops quilt is fabulous with the way you did the gradual colors, making it look like the ocean. Your scrappy quilt reminded me that I have a lot of 2" or 2.5" squares somewhere. I had a whole lot of small blue scraps and white scraps and intended to make a postage stamp quilt. Someday...
                          Thanks for sharing photos of all your quilts!
