May Quilts



May saw me getting back into my wobbly groove after vacation and finishing up two quilts (not UFO's - LOL). Hope to finish one before guild meeting though. This first one is for my Godson (Steve M) and his lovely wife (Waen M)'s soon to be here baby Kai. This was a kit, but as I was tired of making stars, I used the Hole in the barn door pattern for the blocks and decided since I wanted to get this one done fast and the material is flannel, I'd make it into a raw edge quilt. Here is Hey, Diddle, Diddle (kit from Connecting Threads).



The second quilt was a collaborative one with my daughter-in-law, Deanna. She wanted a wall hanging for my grandson, Frank's, preschool teacher. She came over and we put it together in six hours using my strip and flip method. Deanna cut, ironed and clipped as I sewed. We were a great team, and I love her color sense - she is such a natural at it. Keep telling her she has to make some quilts! The kids are going to sign the blocks and will be a wall hanging when done.
