The "monster quilt" - this is absolutely the cutest quilt I have had the pleasure of working on. Rose is giving it to her grandson - what a lucky boy! I'm pretty sure this is a Sue Garman quilt that was sold as a block of the month a few years ago.

This next quilt has the most amazing story - it was pieced by Barbara for her granddaughter- her first quilt ever - and she's 87 years young! Barbara was so pleased with the quilting - I'm pretty sure she's caught the quilting bug like the rest of us so I expect to see more from her!

And speaking of first quilts, my sister made a quilt last year using fabric from her kids clothing, husbands shirts, etc. using the mile-a-minute piecing technique on Edith's blog ((Mile a Minute tutorial) - and yes, this was also her first quilt . . .
