I came back!

Alright, I know its been a while, but I came back! Holidays were crazy, I got a 9 - 5 job, internet busted for a while, and making things for people makes it difficult to put things up pictures where they might see them. So lets start with the gifts! (because I have been buuusy!!!)

So I made quilts for my dad, mom, and sister for christmas - a large undertaking.  I totally improved my dad's (left) and my sisters (right).  I based my mom's quilt (middle) off of a wall hanging sized quilt from Elizabeth Hartman's Craftsy class: Inspired Modern Quilts.  It's based off the orange quilt, and done with applique.  I finished all the quilts with an envelope binding and lots of safety pins, which I had never done before, but now after doing three it wasn't that difficult. 

I really enjoyed doing the quilts, and I have more improved quilts stirring around in my head for when I get some time! (I'm rooting for a snow day).
