Two More Finished Quilts for Christmas

Okay so the whole blogging for 31 days kinda fell through, guess that happens when you are pregnant and get sick. But I still managed to sew everyday, I just didn't blog about it.

I did complete everything on my monthly to-do list

  • Finish two more quilts for Christmas
  • Halloween Mini quilt
  • Christmas Mini quilt
So that is at least a highlight, every sewing item on my October to-do list did mange to get finished between being pregnant, chasing after a toddler, and getting sick!

Without further ado here are my completed quilts!


Another quilt for one of my nephews. I used In Color Order's Lazy Daisy pattern. I really do love how fast the quilt top comes together once you have all of the squares cut. Plus I love that every quilt is a little different even though I have used this pattern for 3 out of the 4 quilts for my nieces and nephews. I love the serpentine quilting stitch. I has become one of my go to stitches. It's fun and I love the look.


My father-in-law is a car guy, specifically a Ford car/truck guy. He has restored a few of them and takes them to car shows around the country. So one day I happen to be at Joann and I found some Ford fabric, I knew what I was going to make him for Christmas. Now he can have a nice quilt for when they travel around to shows. I used In Color Order's Arithmetic pattern with 8 inch squares for the large scale prints and mixed those with some solid colors to help break up the busyness of the quilt.  I did some straight line quilting outlining the squares, a nice basic quilting that works well with the quilt.

Happy Sewing!
