I wanted my family and some of my close friends to have a quilt that I made.
Here is one of the gifts I made for Christmas 2014! It's the Husband's and I'm so excited with the way it turned out. It's the first quilt I've made him!
He loves all things Camo. I. do not. While on one of our trips this summer, I came across this leaf print that reminded me of Camo, and I thought it was a great compromise!
I made him stay out in the truck while I went on a crazy fabric shopping spree for his quilt! All these fabrics were bought specifically for his quilt from a great little quilt shop in LaPine, Oregon.
I used a tan fleece that went on sale at JoAnn's in November and I quilted it on my friends long arm! Me.... All by Myself!... I wanted a wood grain look and I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out! It's not professional quality by any means, but I think it turned out pretty good for my 3rd time or so on a long arm. :) I'm extremely grateful for all my friends help and letting me camp out at her house all day, just before Christmas! Thank You Jeri!
It's a big and HEAVY quilt. I used warm and natural batting too. And the husband has slept with it every night since he got it. :)
My goal was to make 1 quilt a month in 2014 for gifts. I didn't quite make it... but I did gift 7 quilts with 6 of them being made in 2014! AND each of them has a LABEL !!! Go Me!! LOL
I'll be sharing the other quilts throughout the rest of the month....
Happy Sewing !!! ooxx`jodi
