Finally some Finishes

I finally was able to finish some quilts I have been working on.  The first one is my Sparkling Cider quilt I started at the Panguitch Quilt Walk.  I did it in all red, white and blue patriotic fabrics.  I apologize for the lousy pictures.  It was so windy and the grandkids were helping me hold it up. It was all they could do to hold on to it.

The second one is a quilt top I started last year.  It is a pattern from Missouri Star Quilt Company.  I saw it on YouTube and just had to make it.  It is called " Be my Neighbor".

I love how it turned out.  I will send this one to my sister in California.  I quilted it on my home sewing machine.

This 3rd one is a flannel rag quilt I made using free fabric.  It is very scrappy.  I am making quite a few of these (or as long as the free fabric holds out) to give to our local Highway Patrol guys and some to give my son for in his tow trucks.  Come winter when there is an accident including small children they can give the child a snuggle blanket to warm up in.  They measure 41"x41".

Hope everyone had a safe 4th of July and same for our upcoming 24th of July Celebration.

4-H Quilt Camp

Three days this week I have been helping out at 4-H Quilt Camp.  They have been making a flannel puffy rag quilt.  They started with 6 inch squares of fabric.  Here is a picture of my granddaughter Hailey clipping the seams of hers.

 They made it 9 blocks wide and 12 blocks long.

Here is her front...

And here is the back

Don't you just love the fabrics?  and the quilt looks like a puffy cloud and will be so fun to snuggle with this winter.

I haven't had a chance to sew for myself but will do a lot this next week.  I will have 4 days off.

Happy 4th of July

I finally finished the quilt top for my daughter.  Her birthday is the 4th so I am making her this patriotic quilt.  I will quilt it tomorrow and over the weekend while she is gone.  I hope she enjoys it.
I hope everyone has a safe and happy 4th of July...
