Hot Finish!

Yesterday I put the final stitches in
"Hot Hot Hot."

I love this quilt!
It's wild and bright and fun and colorful!

It surprises me at how much I like this one.

The zebra prints, the polka dot border...
so much fun!

This is the final quilt I had to make for this
HUGE plan that hatched back in January.

My side of the family is having a family reunion beginning next week.
I have 11 nieces and nephews and I decided to make them each a quilt.
Doing this was going to make me practice and, hopefully,
improve upon some of my not so great quilting skills.

The quilts are finished and I did learn some things in this
creative process.

Here is the stack ready to be packed up for the trip north.

Looking at the binding side is fun, too!

A peek at the quilts in the stack...

I'm looking forward to playing Santa Quilter next week.
The six hearts in the upper corner are for my siblings, my mom and me.
For the last four years I have made a little patriotic quilt for all of us.
I had to continue with that tradition!!

Onto the next project!!

Please visit Patchwork Times to see what others are creating.

Happy Quilting!!

I sure hope your nieces and nephews appreciate your quilts. They are fabulous. I'm so impressed that you didn't do just 4 patches. And the apple tree one! Wonderful. That quilt always talks to me. Enjoy your trip.

Santa quilter what an awesome job!! How special is that, each niece and nephew get a quilt. This is one family reunion they will remember. That hot pink quilt is my favorite. Love how you quilted it.

What fantastic quilts, your family are so lucky.. and love your socks too. I love knitting socks and my DH has enough to wear a different pair for a week, must knit him some more!

OMG Raomona! I am doing the exact same thing!!! Last year 3 of my nieces kind of ambushed me and starting begging for quilts. I was telling hubby about it on the way home and before the 10 minute ride was over, I had hatched the Niece project...at the time there were 11 nieces and great nieces, now there are 13. Also 3 young great nephews that I can't leave out. I have 4 little quilts to finish before next Saturday where they will be delivered at the family reunion. It's been a hard secret to keep all year long!!! But what fun it has been and I can't wait for my surprises to be revealed.
