Ones That Got Away

Many of the quilts I have made had been given away.  I loved making each and every one of them but something told me that sharing them would be just as rewarding as keeping them.  I wanted my friends and family to use and enjoy the quilts I made rather than have them stored away somewhere in my home.  Here are a few of the quilts I've given away and one I just can't seem to part with!

Words for Mary

Comfy Colors for Kim

Friends are always together in spirit.

Beautiful little Chickadees

Tea Cups for Jeannie

The pleasure of company and the comforts of solitude,
all in a simple cup of tea.
Tea cups between the stars

Chippers for Betty

Chippers, Cats, Camping and Beer
Beach Blanket for Audrey

For my friend Audrey - "A Day At The Beach" -  pattern is Crazy Eight's
Angels for Gail
For my friend Gail - "A day hemmed in prayer seldom unravels"
Twiggy for Ben and Kristen
A wedding gift for Kristen and Ben - "Twiggy" (free pattern from Moda Bake Shop).
I loved it so much I'm making one for myself!
Apple Blossoms for Doris
Even though Doris retired in 2006 (!) she hasn't received this quilt yet.  I just love it and can't seem to part with it.  I've promised myself that once I get the label on I'll give it to her.  Hopefully by the time winter rolls around this year.  (UPDATE:  I did give Doris her quilt only 6 years after I made it!)
For my friend Doris' retirement - "Apple Blossoms"
Purple Log Cabin

Mom's Senior Citizen group was having a craft fair so she asked me and my sister if we would make a quilt for them to raffle off.  Mom paid for the fabrics, Dutchy (on the left) and I made the quilt.  The woman who won the quilt was recovering from a serious illness and sent us a lovely thank you note.
I love the shades of purple from the lightest lavender to the deepest amethyst

25th Wedding Anniversary for Sue and Scott - I finally found the pictures of the quilt my sister Dutchy and I made for our sister Sue and her husband Scott on their 25th anniversary.

Here they are at the party cutting the cake in from of a huge poster of them cutting the cake at their wedding.
