4 Fabulous Finishes!!

I have been super busy in the quilting studio!!  This project has been ongoing for the past 2 1/2 years and I am SOOOO glad to say that it is FINISHED!!

In June 2007 a friend of mine, Bonnie Minor, from the HGTV Quilting and Needlework Forum was having twins.  I wanted to make her a baby quilt for each twin and the other ladies on the board wanted to do something for her too.  So I hatched the idea to make her a siggy baby quilt for each child.  She also has an older child so we collected siggies to make all 3 children a quilt. 

My mom was diagnosed with cancer around the time the last of the siggy blocks were sent in and this project soon found itself on the backburner.

Well, I revived the project last week and now all 3 quilts are on their way home to the children!  I know they will be so excited to find a wrapped gift inside the box for each of them!!  I cant wait to see the expressions on their faces when they unwrap their quilts!

55 members of the forum sent in the siggy blocks and I pieced the quilt tops and quilted them on my Gammill machine!

Don't you think the children will love snuggling under these??

This next quilt is a secret....SHHHHHH....but I have to upload it for it to count in the OPAM Challenge that I am participating in!  When I finished quilting the 2nd pink quilt for the children, instead of changing thread to blue for the little boys quilt, I went ahead and put this one on the machine since it was going to be quilted in the same pink thread!  This quilt is headed to a good friend of mine!!  But mums the word until it reaches its destination!!
Well this is the 31st and it is 3 hours from midnight so along with the other few things I did accomplish this month, I would say I did pretty darn good!! YAY ME!!!
