January Finishes

Sorry about the awful pictures but it has been raining non stop here in Northern California. I finally finished a flannel quilt for my future sister-in-law. She is giving this pastel elephant quilt to her younger sister. (Younger sister is 21 and loves elephants.) SIL purchased the flannel in the form of receiving blankets and gave them to me to work my magic. I purchased the backing fabric (Floral) from Joann's. I think it turned out well.

This is a quilt for Nick. Nick is 7 and loves to hunt and fish with his dad and my husband. I have been promising him this quilt since I made his sister Emma a pink and white quilt in June 09. Sorry I took so long Nick! I used an assortment of Hunting/Outdoors fabrics that I have collected over the years. I have a few more quilts to make in the hunting/outdoors theme but I have the hardest time finding patterns that I like. I really need to sit down and brainstorm a new design like I did for Nick's. The combination of sashing and large tumblers made this quilt quick and easy to piece.
