Quilts for the nephews!

19 February 2012

These two quilts are for my brother's two boys.  They have a family tradition of gathering in the family room to watch the Chicago Bears games with their blankets, pillows, and snacks.  So keeping that in mind, I choose prints to match the Bears colors and appliqued a huge football on the middle of the quilt.
Here is Dominic's and Vincent's quilt ....
 



































I am pretty pleased with how they turned out.  I tried to make them a little on the larger size so the boys could grow into them.  This was my first time to applique anything so I was able to stretch my skills a little bit.  This is one of my three projects checked off my list for the 2012 Finish-A-Long!

  6. I love your quilts. Saw them at Too Cute Tuesday. I want to quilt so badly. I will be adding you to my follow list so hopefully I can learn a thing or two from you. Stop by suppersyoungansthangs.blogspot.com sometime. I am going to be asking for help on a quilt my grandmother started. She passed away almost ten years ago and I need help finishing it. I will be posting about it soon. Hope you come by.
