Milo's Quilt

I am going to try this again. I tried to post this the other day. When I went to publish it disappeared on me. So I have to start all over. Here we go.

My sister Margaret (Average Quilter) gave me the material for this quilt. She had it already cut out so all I had to do was piece it and quilt it.

Well when I had gotten it pieced my husband said it this my quilt. Of course it is. Than my daughter came along and said is this my quilt. Sorry Dad already claimed it. Bummer.            

This is the middle of the quilt on the back. I took pictures with my phone for at the time I could not find my camera.
This is around the border of the quilt. It took me about 6 months to quilt this quilt. I am so glad that it is out of my frame and done. Now I have more projects to get finished.

I hope everyone has a Happy Mother's Day.

Old Red Cross Blankets

Our cousin from South Louisiana had these Wool Red Cross Blankets. They wanted us to cover them so they would not be so scratchy.
This is what we did to them. We took two pieces of fabric and covered them. We tied them instead of quilting them. Too thick to quilt. Almost too thick to tied. Than Mom put binding on them.
This is the other one. I think they turned out pretty good.
