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.

Your Aunts quilts are so lovely! the nine patch along with the big square makes for such an interesting quilt - the babies will have such fun!
