It's Been A Long Time!

Wow!  I didn't realize that I hadn't posted to my blog since June!  My life got a little busy during the summer and hasn't slowed down since...

In the early summer, we learned that we would be grandparents again -- and SHE's due to be born in January.  After three sons and one grandson, it was a surprise to find out that we're finally getting a little girl.  Needless to say, I've been buying pink ever since!!

Then, unexpectedly, I went back to work part-time in August -- so, obviously, my schedules and projects had to be rearranged.  In addition to that, I was trying to finish three queen-size quilts, one for each of our children, before Christmas.  There's been very little "down" time in a very long time. 

Here are my finished quilts:

This batik quilt is called Labyrinth.  I added the chain borders (top and bottom) for a little added interest. 

The purple cross in the middle was copied from the stained glass cross in the sanctuary of our church.  The blocks immediately around the cross are "Wings of Eagles" and the outer blocks are "Irish Plaid."

The last quilt is a t-shirt quilt made for our youngest son.  I used the smaller images from the shirts for the top and bottom borders. 

All three quilts were quilted by my friend, Millie, who always does a fantastic job!!

Next on tap are quilts for our two grandchildren and one for my mom.  Maybe it won't take til next Christmas before I get them done!!

Merry Christmas, one and all!!
