Misc. Pictures

My previous co-worker sent me a picture of her daughter with her quilt.  She had some dental surgery and wasn't supposed to lie down, so Laura brought in a chaise lounge, and she looks very cozy in the chaise lounge with her quilt.  Hopefully, it brought her a little comfort along with her ice pack.

We met my son Robert and his son, our grandson, Kevin at Cracker Barrel today, had a nice breakfast, and gave them their quilts.  here is Kevin's on his bed.  They had a fire a while ago, and have an apartment now, but didn't want to replace a lot of stuff, so their beds are on the floor, for now anyway.  My son seems to like it that way, says simple is easy to take care of.  

My son's room with his new quilt.  His wife is out of the area right now, and when she's back, of course he will have a fancier room.    

Today was Dominic's birthday party, and his chair was ready.

He was having a very good time.  

Sometimes it's nice to see the things that you have made and given actually in use and many times you don't get to see them.  This time I was lucky enough to get some pictures, so I thought I'd share.
Also, I'm shamefully behind in answering and acknowledging comments, and I intend to rectify that soon.  I apologize and will catch up.

Finishes for September and 15 Days Left

My Crazy Mom Quilts 36 Patch Quiltalong quilt is finished and will be given to my son, probably this weekend.  I asked him if the flowers would be ok, and he said that since he's a married man it shouldn't be a problem.  Both of these quilts are about 60 by 84 inches. 

This is my grandson Kevin's Turning (Twenty) Twelve.  I figured that if his dad was getting one, so should he.  I thought the light might be better outside, but 'artfully' arranging was out of the question.  Every time I touched them, they fell. 

Here are the backs.  I got a king sized flannel sheet on sale, and added some leftover flannel to it.  That navy flannel shows and picks up everything.  I figure that if they just lay them on the floor, they'll never have to vacuum again, lol.

Kevins Turning Twelve Even Though Hes Seventeen

My son did want my Crazy Mom Quilts 36 patch quilt along quilt, so then I got to thinking.  My grandson Kevin lives with his dad, he's sixteen, and I haven't made him a quilt yet, so I thought one was in order.  I knew it had to be a quick one, so this is a Turning Twenty pattern, I only used twelve fat quarters, so I call it a Turning Twelve.  Original, huh.   They had a fire at their house a while back, so they are living in an apartment, and the furnishings are sparse.  This will brighten things up and keep him warm.   I have a set of king sized flannel sheets ordered in navy blue, and that will be for the backs, so I'm at a standstill for a little while.   This quilt also will finish at about 60 x 84 inches.
