I had to work fast and furious to get all four done. I MADE it with the exception of Brandon. His quilt was an embroidered football quilt that I was not able to get over to my quilter before Christmas, but the quilt top was done. Sad thing I still have not taken it over to my quilter. She has been in the middle of planning a wedding so I was pretty sure she didn't want to see the whites of my eyes. So after this week I will get that over to her and will post when I get it back.
Well much to my surprise they loved the quilts. I told my two college girls that they can just save them for when they have a home if they want, but nope they both took them back to college with them. WOW they know how to make a mom feel good.
Alyssa's quilt was done using the pattern "Out of Time" by Crazy Old Ladies. This quilt works up so fast. I used a layered cake from Moda which made this super fast. If you need to whip up a quilt in a day I suggest this pattern.
Lauren's quilt is a log cabin. You can never go wrong with a log cabin pattern. She loved the fun and spunky colors. I scalloped the boarder and added rick rack around the binding.
Brandon's quilt I will post soon. Hopefully it will look great when I get it back from my quilter. Right now if I have to look at one more football I will scream.
Well it was very fun to do this for them. HOWEVER, I think I might have gotten myself in a little deep because the kids are already asking me "Mom have you started our Christmas quilts yet for next year" YIKES
