Things I’ve Made Over the Years March 31, 2011

This house quilt was made for the Bohan family several years ago as a Christmas gift. I have since made them a matching pillow. It is hand and machine quilted.Jefferson had started making the top of this quilt many years ago. His sister Kiera had worked on assembling the top and started quilting it. Karen (their mom) asked me if I would finish the quilt for them. I added borders, machine quilted it and added binding.


I designed the borders using the leftover fabric from the top. Luckily they had plenty of extra fabric. I really like how it turned out.

Karen came up with this great label to put on the back of the quilt I was finishing for her son, Jefferson. It is made using leftover fabric from the quilt top.

This is an "Around the World" baby quilt.

This is a picture of Calvin when he was 5 months old. He is sitting in the basket with the first around the world quilt I made. A baby quilt, using the same design is on the couch behind him.
