PHotO of ChriStmaS GiFts

I thought I would share a few photos, of Christmas gifts I made for the family this year. This little Annie went to my Bubba's Girlfriend ;)

Below you will find two of the three Quilts that I made for my family this year... the top one was for the Step Monster and the bottom one was for the Big Daddie O. No photo of Bubba's quilt yet.
I personally am still amazed that I got so much done... Several of you knew.. that I completed the hand stitched blocks just two weeks before Christmas.. then it was time to put the blocks together and construct the rest of the Quilts. I was able to get all of the quilts done except for the hand tying. The embellishments were on.... Then last weekend I finished them up and two of them are at their homes.. being enjoyed by the old people as they watch TV, resting in their reclining chairs ;)

I had a lot of fun making these quilts.. I just wish I didn't have to rush at the last min.. I spent over 6 months working on the blocks of these quilts... I know if I had sewn all weekend long every weekend.. it would not have taken 6 months.. but I did these blocks on my spare time. I figured out that each block took about 4-5 hours each for me... I was just very excited they liked them after all that work :)
If I was guessing these quilts are full size.. I think they ended up as 100X85 inches.
The main blocks were 18 inch blocks and there were 12 of those.
