Nautical Flags Quilt

My sister-in-law saw some nautical flags pictured on the internet and asked if I could make her a queen size quilt. I opened my EQ software and got busy.
This quilt was fun to make. I tried to place the flags on the quilt
so when she did her fold down at the top all the flags would show
and only a few would be repeated
this is the back
sorry for the awful picture
I was in such a hurry I was lucky to even get a picture of this quilt
I thought simple straight line ruler work would show off the blocks best
and my sister-in-law was very happy with the way it turned out.
She said it looked exactly as she imagined it to be.

Another Baby Quilt

Here is another quilt I made for the new (a year old next month) little one in our life.
I saw this quilt pinned on my daughters pinterest board and
loved it. I found where it was published in
but didn't have the issue so I was inspired to make up
my own. I love the way it turned out.
this quilt was so much fun to make
after I made the quilt I found the pattern available
for purchase if you would like to make one
until later - Carol

Christmas Quilt

2014 was a crazy busy year for me. I did manage to make a few quilts just not much time to blog.
So I guess I'll start off where I left off.
This is the boy version of the Christmas Quilt I showed for the girls.
I wanted to give these quilts out at Thanksgiving in 2013 but ran out of time
and almost didn't make it again in 2014 but I did and was SO happy!
I made 2 with girl colors for my daughters
and this one with the traditional colors for my son. I was happy
with all three of them, and the kids were happy with them too.
These cute embroidery designs came from
even though I did each design 3 times I never got tired of it
(see the red string under the white fabric?? I sure hope I
removed it before I gifted the quilt, I'll have to check)

I had so much fun making these quilts.
Until next time - Carol
