Quilts I took to Florida

 So I took the five boys with me to Florida- yes I drove there all by myself- yes I am crazy and yes I am still alive. Here are afew of the quilts i finished for some of my family in FLorida.  Owls and pears baby quilt is for my sister and her soon to be new baby boy.  It is a simple improv square within square- really fun fabric I just had to use and I thought a new baby boy it would be perfect I also threw in some wonderful KONAS in.  I wish I had kept it for myself.

 This quilt I made for my sister in Law last year and I finally finished it and gave it to her- it was a simple square within a square block but it was made with this really cute array of musical intrument fabric I had gathered.  She is a musician.

This last little baby quilt I made for a new little niece Joylee.  She is as cute as a button and I had this very pretty aviary charm pack that I was waiting to make a sweet baby girl qilt with and so Joylee is the lucky recipient.  I felt very accomplished.  Some of these quilts had been hanging around way too long.  Florida was a lot of fun and my sewing machine enjoyed the trip there too!

Green with envy- Modern Quilt Guild Challenge

I really want to be a better blogger but it never seems to work out for me- of course I have an excuse- my computer was dying and it was horrible to work with it until it finally gave up the ghost and we had to buy another one. 
Here is a fun quilt I made for the monochromatic Modern Quilt Guild Challenge.  I didn't win but it is the first quilt I have ever truly finished for myself.  So in the end I am a winner!
