Here is a couple I got done for Christmas presents.  I have a couple more that need finished but they knew their present would be late.

The first one is a variant of a 9 square, my wife picke out the colors for it, but I made it anyway, it is for my Great Niece who was born in late July.  It is 3 feet X 5 feet in size.  I'm going to try to get a better picture sometime, but this is what I got on Christmas Eve.



This second one is a doll crazy quilt I made for another Great-Niece who is 6.  It is 18 inches X 14 inches in size.  She is one of the sweetewst kids you've ever seen and thinks I'm the coolest guy she has ever met.  I got all kinds of hugs for this one. Grin

Here is a Super King Size (120"x120") patchwork quilt that my wife made for some friends of ours.  The pieces are all hand sewn.  The maroon border has the birth dates of their 10 kids plus their anniversary date embroidered on it.  My grand daughter sewed the border on it and we hand tied it off at work using the conference tables.

Neat quilts.

That would make a great seminar/workshop at a Convention, everyone that signs up brings cloth remnants and a quilt is made over a day's time, the finished product then used as a raffle prize at the National, or similar, as a donation.

John, just how big do you think that quilt would be? Wink  It took Joan over 6 months to hand piece the top of that quilt.

Perhaps what could be done is a seminar demonstrating the hand piecing and then everyone who wanted to participate could make a square (say a 3' by 3') at home and then it could be pieced together at the next convention and maybe even put together and hand tied off.

Sound's more likely to me. I know sewing takes me forever, no matter what the project.

I suppose that's how they did it when they had those quilting bees. I guess they worked on the same quilt over the course of several sessions, huh? Smiley

George, when I showed that to Joan she said it was "sacrilegious" to quilters.  No more wine for you!

This was my baby quilt.



These stockings were made by my better-half from an old quilt.
