Quilts Mailed!

I finished the quilts for my soon to be three year old twin grandkids.  I mailed them last week.   It cost a minor fortune to mail them from Idaho to Kentucky!  I also made a quilt top for a friend from a kit she had.  For the twins quilts I used three patterns by Elizabeth Hartman and figured out my own layout.

Labels.  I do not have an embroidery machine, so I improvised with the lettering on my regular machine.  Their last name is covered for privacy.

This is the Tula Pink quilt I made for my friend with a fussy cut block closeup below.

Linking up with Design Wall Monday.

You did an awesome job on your grandkids quilts, Julie. I just love how you combine the three patterns to make your own design. They will love these for years. The fabric in your friends quilt is so fun, too. You've been very busy!

Wonderful quilts, the colors are so pretty. The grands will adore them!

Postage keeps going up. I like UPS for quilts. Roll them tight in a jumbo ziplock and squish them into a box. The twins have an Awesome grandma. Lpve the Tula fussy cut.

Oh my, the quilts for your grandkids are awesome! I love them. My young-adult GD lives in Kentucky and I sent her a quilt from Calif. I used USPS priority mail flat rate box and cost less than $13. I used one of those air-lock baggies and squished it in the box. Worked great. But for items that don't fit the flat rate boxes, I prefer FedEx over UPS.
