Cheetah wanted another mini quilt and told me he wanted it to be purple. So I made this star which finishes at 24 inches square. It was inspired by the quilt Lucky made by Camille Roskelley.
I finished this jelly roll race quilt and call it Blushing Zebra. It was inspired by a black and white quilt with green squares I saw once. (I had it bookmarked, but my ipad had to be repaired and I lost all my bookmarks--sorry.)
I then quilted this Ray of Sunshine quilt for a friend whose sister-in-law is going through treatments for leukemia. Her family wrote messages on the central white squares. It is backed in a fun yellow minky.
I finally finished using the scraps from my Colorwash Trip. I call this Colorwash Scraps. (I am so original--not). I hang it on this rod in my kitchen.
My husband asked, "Are you sure you want a quilt in the kitchen?" I told him if it got dirty, it would be easier to wash than his grandmother's painting. (It now hangs in the hallway, instead of the kitchen--a safer location.)
I finished this Hungry Animal Alphabet Slideshow for my Monkey. It will be for his big boy bed... someday.
With the scraps from both Slideshow quilts, I made this Rainbow Scraps quilt.
I love doll quilts for my own American Girl Dolls. I got them both this year so I could sew little girl things. My niece thinks I am such a cool aunt, and we talk American Girl accessories together.
I also helped three of my nieces make tote bags. Cheetah wanted to sew like his cousins, so I helped him make his own first quilt. He calls it Fuzzy Cheetah.
In August I also cleaned my craftroom and gave away fabric and old projects to people who would enjoy them and finish some of them for charity. I had realized that I didn't have to finish everything just because I had inherited it. That is also why I now like working on one or two projects at a time. I don't want to leave a bunch of UFO's for someone else to finish.
I finished these two quilts for my younger boys, Panda and Monkey. (Cheetah already had one.) I did the piecing and quilting in August and just finished the binding in September.
Here is Panda's Collection:
And here is Monkey's Collection:
Now, each of my boys have a baby quilt, mini quilt (or two), and two twin size quilts I have made for them. Cheetah likes to keep track!
Do your children keep track of who gets what and how many?
