More Quilts from Grandma

Joanne has been busy making quilts for her grandchildren. These two make number 4 and number 5. The first one is all about action. It has San Diego Chargers fabric and big footbals on the front and Monster Truck fabric on the back.

And the other one is just as much fun. Monster trucks and flames on the front.

And the back for the flaming Monster Trucks is Spiderman

Some kids are going to be very happy and warm on Christmas Day and the cold days after.

Jody's Enchilada Quilt

Now this is a hot one. Jody made this several months ago in a class at the Crazy 9 Patch. The pattern is called Licorice Twist from the book Patchwork Memories by Retta Warehime. It was a fun quilt. Of course, Jody's color choices do not look like any licorice candy that I have ever seen but it is all coordinated front and back.

Jody and her husband have 'adopted' a family in Tijuana through their church. She plans to give this quilt to that family. I'm sure that they will love it.

And how about this back. This fabric is so beautiful. It is great BIG Gerbera daisies in a bright shade of orange.

My life has changed in the last couple of years - some bumps, I retired from quilting, and then I moved to Texas. I'm anxious to see what new adventures await me in the next phase of my life.
