Baby quilt, 9. purple sleepover quilt – front, 10. red blue white baby quilt – front, 11. birthoween quilt front, 12. love you wall hanging

Mind you, this is just the ones I actually *finished*. We all know I made more tops and some of these tops were made the year before. 😉

Let’s see how much more backlog I can clear out in 2012.

Edit: after all that work I just realized I forgot Sarah’s blue & white quilt an I think Izzy’s quilt I gave to her last Christmas….

Clearly I need to keep better track of these things. 😀

Meaghan’s quilt

Posted on Leave a comment

My daughter Meaghan (kid #3) hunted through my stash and gathered up all the green and purple she coudl find. Solids, prints, didn’t matter, as long as it was green or purple. She them arranged them to her liking and sewed them all together.

We did have some fabric cut into strips, which she chose for the borders – a light print for a skinny inner border (the fabric was cut that thin already) and a dark purple for the outer border.

For the back we used a purple sheet, trimmed and folded over to the front for binding. I quilted it in the ditch, nothing fancy.
