Some Makes

I gifted a couple of quilts to my daughter's in-laws this year.  
We don't usually exchange gifts, but I found some patterns and knew I had to make them for them.  Rick has an antique green truck so when I saw this pattern I knew he needed this one.

Her MIL, Julie, is a HUGE Outlander fan.  
I found this quilt made in the tartan plaid of Jamie Frasier (one of the main characters) so I also knew this needed to be made for her. 
 My friend, Liz, quilted it with thistles, which was perfect for the Scottish heritage of the story.

Here they are with their quilts.

I made quilts for my husband's 2 brothers also.
I can finally show these finished too.
This was made for his brother Mark and wife Jackie.
It was all navy and white/creams.

I used this beautiful blue minky for the back.

This one was made for his brother Andy and wife Sarah.
The colors reminded me of their lake house in Michigan.
Such calm colors.

I love the quilting we used on this quilt. 
 I put gray minky on the back and it was so beautiful.

So these were the quilts I ended the year with.

I hope you all have time to get in a few last minute makes before 2022.

Your quilts are just amazing. The care and love you have put into sewing them. You seem to have a green theme this time. Lucky are the people to receive these lovely gifts. I always feel a gift made is more meaningful than one bought
