Two Quilts

November 18, 2019

Finished the Remembrance Quilt.  I really like the pattern I used. It is called Nova. However, you never know what it will turn out like when you use shirts.  I tried to separate the shirts into lights and darks, but there were some that could have gone either way.  Such strong emotions are tied to these kinds of quilts.  The mother of the young man put her hand to her mouth and cried when she saw it. Which of course made me cry too.  I can't imagine the pain of losing a child, no matter how old they are.

 I finished the first of the two lap quilts I am making for the twin beds.  I thought I was going to love this pattern, but I'm just not that thrilled with it.

So I decided to make different pattern for the second one.  This is called North Star.  It uses a bit more fabric so I've had to order a few more fat quarters.  Hopefully they will come soon so I can get it finished before I leave on my trip.

 Progress so far....

 I will be going to visit my grandchildren in a couple of weeks.  Can't wait.  Hope to have this one finished and both of them on the twin beds in time for Christmas festivities.

 

Are you making any quilts for Christmas gifts??
