My Aunts quilts.

I didn't realize it had been so long since I blogged. We have been loving this beautiful fall weather. I had a wonderful morning yesterday with my aunt. She is working on four baby quilts at one time. She has a very interesting technique. I just love it.






















This purple one and the green one next to it are for twin granddaughters of a friend of hers. She is going to add a green border to the purple one and a purple border to the green one. They look fantastic.






















Notice how she added a 9 patch to each one and a big patch of a print, such a neat way to make a quilt. Sort of a take off on "I Spy" quilts.

I finished the top for my zig zap quilt. I have always wanted to make a zig zag quilt. This is for a friend of my son and daughter in law whose wife is from France.




















I got some time to start a new project this afternoon. My daughter has a friend at work from China who has just had a baby. This is the year of the tiger so she wanted me to use a tiger somehow. So I made these houses today. I love making houses. I think I will make two more houses and fill in the gaps with squares. I am liking making squares in similar colors. I love the subtle look. I might also use some stars.






















Here is a close up of one of my tigers houses. The name of this quilt is going to be Tiger in the House.
