i did it again...I'm trying to get better..

When you are living life its so hard to stop and post on blogger.. But here's another post to add to my growing collection...lol.
I have been working on twin size quilts for six of my twelve grand children.. Since November this has been going on.. They were suppose to be a Christmas present.. And I was suppose to be super granny and have them done by Christmas... Well here it is the last weeks in march and they are complete...




Those are for the boys.... And these last ones are for the girls....

Whew.... And you wouldn't believe the mistakes I made... And the lessons I have learned... Not only about quilting... Lol....
One the girls quilts I quilted the side borders by just following the print on the material... It makes it three dimensional... And left a beautiful zebra design on the back. I think I will use this technique again...I love it... It was easy to do... No marking out a design... No muss no fuss... Easy peezy....




I kept all the others very simple by just stitch in the ditch... I kinda had to with the time that I was running short on...lol.
They will be delivered in a week or two... When we make a trip over to see them...

And now I have to start another project. I learned that it is a good thing to have multiple projects going at once. That way when ya get bored or frustrated ya can jump around a little. But maybe not... I don't know.. All I know is that when I am quilting or messing with fabric or anything crafty I get lost in it.. I could do it 24\7 and be just fine.. Now my children and my family wouldn't be to happy.. Or maybe they don't really mind. Lol.... I really don't know.. Maybe I should poll them!!?
What do you have on the table (O.T.T.)??
Oh oh and I just joined the quilters club of america.. Seems like a great deal.. We shall see.. 
Feel free to leave comments.. I will respond.
