My second quilt and others

So I don't make myself crazy, I am going to randomly be posting photos of quilts in no particular order. I am not actually taking a photo a day, just posting one!

I can't seem to find a picture of my first quilt in my files, I still have the quilt, but I do have a photo of my second quilt. I took a class with my MIL and a friend of hers and made this Irish chain quilt. Picking fabric was very hard, I am much, much better at it now! I still have this quilt also. It's hand quilted and made in 1988.
This one below is a photo transfer quilt I made for one of my coworkers. The 16 students at my one room school took photos (some of them brought some in from home) and we made greeting cards out of them and sold them as a fundraiser. I took the file of pics home secretly so I could make my two coworkers Christmas gifts. They were thrilled with them.
I made this mystery over New Year's with my WA State Quilters online group. I made it in patriotic colors to donate to American Hero Quilts. I still need to add borders and get it sent off!

Great quilts - I always enjoy hearing about why or when someone made a quilt. Looking forward to more.

glad you're back to your Quilts. It's amazing how many we accumulate... My UFO bins over flow with tops.
