Quilt for Christmas for Son and Daughter-n-law

Pin It
The second quilt I did, this one for Son #2 and wife
for the holiday.
I decide that we are nuts with gift giving and had to simplify.
Doing 2 queen size quilts was nuts of me to do, I pieced them,
sent out to have machine quilted and I did the binding,
took pictures and shipped. I'm rethink this plan for next year.

I like to hand sew the binding down, just looks nice.

When they said, "Yellow" for the back I was not sure, but, oh my, I like.
They gave me a picture of a quilt out of a magazine and I just did my thing. The best is hearing that they remember what some of the front pieces of fabric are from, old quilts, baby quilts etc...

  1. I love quilts and this one is gorgeous. Thanks so much for sharing. Mom and I have made quilts over the years and Grandma and I made a quilt for my daughter before she was born. I know how to set up the quilt, but don't know how to bind it. Maybe someone will show me sometime.
