Over Memorial weekend, Andy & I traveled to Illinois for a family visit. On the way through Ohio we stopped at my brother's house for a visit and to deliver some quilts that I had made for three of his grown children.
The first one was for Leah. The embroidered top was purchased from Ebay and I added the borders and hand quilted it.
The second quilt was for Sarah. This was a top that I started as a craftsy.com block-of-the-month, but ended up deleting a couple of their blocks that I didn't like and adding a bunch more that I found online. It is hand quilted.
The third quilt that I gifted in Ohio went to my nephew, Daniel. He served our country for 4 years in the Marines just a short while ago, so I made his "Red, White, and Blue" in tribute to his service! The pattern for this one is "Blue Ridge Beauty" by Bonnie Hunter and is hand quilted, also.
I gifted one more quilt when we got to Illinois, but I will blog about that in a separate post.
All the quilts were received with much appreciation and the appropriate amount of "oooooh's and ahhhhh's"...and that does a quilter's heart good! :)
