Slideshow of quilts

I finished Elizabeth's quilt tonight. The pictures are the back (left) and the top (right) I found these really cute daisy's with smiles on them at a quilt shop in Indiana 2 years ago. Elizabeth's room is every color so this is the perfect quilt for her room. I really like to piece backs (uses more of my stash that way and it used up the left over daisies). The flying geese are made up of batiks. The the four patches incorporate her favorite color of orange. It feels really good to be finishing up this quilt. It has the added benefit of being free hand quilted by her dad! So it will be something she can treasure from both of her parents. KC is modeling the quilt of the pictures. We will be giving it to Liz on her half birthday of February 20Th!

How nice of your hubby to quilt for you. Do you own a Longarm? Cute quilt and daughter. Where did your son serve his Mission. I'm LDS too.

Thanks Mary for your kind comments. My son served a mission in Frankfurt Germany. It's been great to have him home! He leaves for BYU next week. I have a grace frame with a Janome 1600p. I sold my longarm when we moved to Michigan from Utah. There just wasn't room in the new house but I sure do miss it.
