Two more quilts for The Wounded Soldiers

I have had these two quilts made for several months
now and am ashamed to say I am just getting
around to quilting them.
The quilts are made narrow to stay out of
the way of IVs and medical equipment
while the soldiers are on stretchers and being
taken to hospitals to get the medical attention they need
the back
I didn't have enough fabric so I left off the
stars on this one.  I think I might like it better.
and the back.
If you are interested in making any quilts you can read
about it
just click onto the tab that says Projects
and look for Stitches of Love.
You should also find an email address to find
out more.
They have so many fun projects to make.
The soliders need so many things.
I hope you have a fun week-end!!!
until later - Carol

Star Quilt

I had so much fun making this quilt
and I just love the rain boots
they are so cute
pink and green with a touch of black
this was my first time using this panto -
it is called "Glamorous" by willow leaf
I think it's a good fit for this quilt
I'm happy with the way it turned out
although I still need more practice

Jelly Roll Quilt

I made this quilt with a jelly roll of "Oh Deer" by Moda
I have a lot of precuts in my fabric stash.
I think I am going to use them up and not buy any more.
I don't like the way the birds head is chopped off.
I was originally making this quilt as a gift but there
was no way I would give something like this as a gift.
I also find with the precuts the cuts are not accurate.
You can't count on all of the stack being cut at 2 1/2,
or 5 inches or 10 inches, etc.
I wish I wouldn't have bought so many.
I did get a good deal on them, and loved how you get so
many different fabrics but it's not worth it to me.
Am I the only one that feels this way??
Here is the back.
I have an accuquilt cutter so I guess I will just start
cutting my own.
until later - Carol

Another Mustache Quilt

 Cute little polka-dot mustaches
and isn't this mustache fabric just sooo cute?!!
Already washed and crinkly - just the way
we like our quilts.
the border
and the backing fabric
and a lamp that will go in the room.
I'm helping my daughter fix up my sweet little granddaughters room.
She's going from the little girl to young teen look.
I'll take some picture of the room after we finish and
let you see how it looks.
until later - Carol
