Past Work

I thought that maybe you might like to see my past work. So here are a couple of blankets that I have made. The first one was made for a co-worker's granddaughter. The second was made for my son. It has the ties on the top of the quilt. The 3rd is all flannel and was made for my neice. I let her pick out the fabrics she wanted and it turned out pretty cute.

The blue one is just two flannel fabric sewn together then crocheted around the edge. The Care Bears one is for my oldest daughter. It is tied with the International Quilting Stitch where the ties are in the inside of the quilt instead of on the outside (her first blanket had the ties on the top-she called them fuzzies-but she would pull on them and eventually pulled them all out. When I made this blanket I did the IQS and she was so mad at me. She wanted her fuzzies). The Elephant and Giraffe blanket is for my other daughter. I hand stitch all the elephants and giraffes. It took me quite a while but it turned out really cute so it was worth it. The pillow case in that picture was also something I made, to match the blanket (it is for a travel sized pillow though).

The rest of these are of the same pattern. I really like this design so most of my friends got this one. I did make some for girls also but I can't find the pictures of those. This was a lot of fun to make but took some time to do it.

These last 2 pictures are of the same quilt, front and back. This one also has a border on it that I didn't do on the other ones. All the ones of this design have been machine quilted.

I prefer to tie them and can tie them either with the International Stitch or with the ties on the top.
