    Sharing My Quilts - Day 4 (Monday)

    Today I wanted to share some quilts that I have made for past co-workers and their families.

    This first quilt was for a man who had worked for the company longer than anyone else. Shortly before he retired his wife took up quilting. This is the first & only rag quilt I ever made. The final result was a pretty heavy quilt.

    The second quilt is for a sweet, sweet young lady who helped me in so many ways learn about computers when our office first started using them. She was my life saver when it came to computer knowledge & kept me out of so many jams that could have had terrible results had it not been for her. This quilt was made in 2004 for her first baby boy & it's a strippy quilt.

    This next quilt if or a son of the vice president of the company I worked for. His wife is the one who got me started in machine quilting back in 2001. This quilt is for their son as a wedding gift. I made it from a quilt that I purchased from a LQS. The picture is of them in their home with the quilt.

    Another wedding quilt for a co-worker's daughter. She LOVES bright colors so I made this one as bright as I could and she was so happy with it.

    I hope y'all have a great Monday & I'll show more tomorrow.

            Thanks...I wanted something sort of "manly" for him & pretty generic. The back is the same fabric as the light colors on the front.

                    Blessed are the children of the piecemakers for they shall inherit the quilts!

                          Your quilts are beautiful.

                          Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

                          Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.

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