Whoo! I survived. I went to California with 4 quilts instead of 5 - one uncle and his family weren't able to make it, due to strep throat.
I gave my dad the Christmas Chaos quilt - he looks pretty happy, doesn't he? :)
For Pops, my grandfather, I made him "There's a Dog on my Quilt!" I was up until 5am Friday morning sewing the binding on - figuring I could do the handsewing part in the car.
My mom actually helped me sew the binding down - while I was sewing the binding on my husband's quilt! :P
The dog is based on Pops' airedale terrier dog that my parents bought him as a birthday/Christmas gift 4 years ago. She's still a pretty hyper thing for somebody who's 4 now. ;)
I made the tongue flappable, I think it's my favorite part of the whole quilt. :)
Pops has opened and is checking out the quilt. Each 9-patch uses a different fabric. I managed to make the entire quilt except for the light brown "fur" part all out of my stash.
My baby sister Sarah and Aunt S are checking out the quilt with Pops.
Sarah also gave me a belated birthday gift, a webcam! Now we'll be able to "see" each other online - we won't be talking, but signing! I'm thilled, I hate how rusty my signing has become. I just need to hook it up now. :P
