I'm excited to share three (woo!) finished quilts with you! Now don't worry, these didn't come together overnight! I've been working on them over the last three months. I am a terrible quilt giver, I get so attached to them throughout the process and then it's hard for me to let go. I'm finding it's easier if I start a quilt for a specific person, I tend to get less attached from the beginning. Anyways, back on topic! I just gifted three quilts, so now I can share them! :)
Bella Patchwork Quilt - This first quilt is for my younger brother, Andrew. It's actually an early Christmas present! It's quite early, but my next two are late, so it evens out, haha. He picked out some Echo fabric by Lotta Jansdotter and made pillows for his dorm room, so I decided to make him up a throw quilt to match using Lotta's new line, Bella. I did simple patchwork squares, my favorite! I used 5.5" squares to get the most out of the fat quarters and added a few white solid squares to fill it out.
Red, White, & Black All Over Quilt - The next quilt is for my Mom for her birthday! It was back in June, but wasn't done quite in time, so I held on to it until we came home this week. (Am I the only one paranoid about mailing quilts? I always avoid it if I can!) This quilt uses vintage bear claw blocks that were made by my grandmother. I sashed them and added cornerstones! It's wall sized and is finished up with vintage fabric for the back and binding!
Rescued Log Cabin Quilt - The final quilt is for my Dad! It's for Father's Day! I thrifted these vintage log cabin blocks a few months ago. They were already sewn up into two strips, so I left them intact. Added in some solid fabric to space them out, and voila! I wanted it to look rugged and manly, I think this is pretty close! It's backed in a really cool vintage sheet and is also throw sized!
