Quilts Quilts Quilts

So, as promised I am posting an all exclusive quilt post. I love this hobby! These are quite a few quilts I have done over the last two years or so.

This is my stocking for Christmas that I made and have enjoyed for 2 Christmas' now.

Here is another dog on my quilt made special for my mom when she was going through her treatments for her breast cancer a couple years ago. Her and I aren't that big into pink, but given the situation, we came to embrace the color well. The dog on her quilt was made to resemble her beagle "Chili Dog" that she has.

This quilt is Bre's quilt. She loves horses and I really enjoyed being able to make her a more grown up quilt (the last one I had made before this one was Care Bears).

I love this quilt!!!! I made it for Madi as an excuse I think to keep it. This quilt is so vibrant that it just makes you happy looking at it.

These sail boats were made for my cousin's baby. This was my first time doing this pattern and actually only time. It was ok, but the quilt did turn out really cute.
I enjoyed making this one because it was for my dad. Theresa gave me left over fabric from when my brother was little and she made his bedding. Well, she gave it to me and told me to make my dad a quilt. How cool, I actually got to make my dad something! The backing was fabric that had different major city sky lines on it and I thought this quilt was perfect because my dad loves the city as well as race cars.
This is a quilt I made for another cousin's baby. This pattern is fun. Originally I bought this pattern, used the air plane and designed my own twin size quilt for Colby which was the first quilt of that size I actually finished.
This is so cool. This pattern in it's original form is so hard, I would have never done it. I found an easy "cheater" way in a sense of doing it and what a piece of cake. It turned out so pretty.

This is a quilt that serves two purposes. First it's a quilt, second if you look below the back fabric is a road like the play rugs they make. Well, if your not using your quilt to nap, you can use it to drive your cars all over. I thought this was a neat idea and so convenient for travel. I made this for my dear friend Winter's son fro his 4th birthday. I think my boys were eyeballing it.
Well, this is just some of the many I have made. I will have to make another post at another time to share a bit more. I hope you enjoyed looking at them as much as I have enjoyed making them.

I love my Curious George quilt! I even share it with the kids. Gabriel is now a big fan of monkeys, so he really loves it too!!

Well, Gabriel still has his quilt sitting at my parents house and it has monkeys on it. If you would like to go get it, let me know and I'll tell Theresa. Although it is my first one I actually quilted free hand by myself, so it's not the best, but it has a ton of love sewn into it.
