Hug Quilt #3 & #4

I hope that your Christmas was merry, bright, and jolly!

I was able to finish and deliver Hug Quilts #3 & #4 on Christmas Eve day but this is the first opportunity I've had to post pictures. I need to get #2, #3 & #4 back to complete the bindings and labels.

# 3 - made for my friend who lost her sister this year. Her sister was very fond of dogs so I used a Moda Posh Pooch jelly roll and the Fields of Flowers pattern by Sandy Gervais. It's very blendy but my friend loved it.


Hug Quilt #4 was made for our friend who lost his son this year. I used some Kansas Troubles fat quarters with a pattern called Cake Walk by The Calico Horse. I like it's simplicity and think it looks very masculine. He was very happy to receive this hug from my DH and I.



I'm very excited that I was able to make all four Hugs Quilts for our friends. And, I'm especially excited to say that all four were made entirely from my stash! WooHoo!

I hope that you're enjoying a relaxing week end plying your needle and thread.

Thanks for stopping by and please come again very soon!

In Friendship!

I love HUGS for quilt names...and may have to snatch that for a quilt or two this year. Also it is refreshing to read all made from stash already purchased. I'm guessing with the economy the way it is there will be plenty more of that out in blogland this next year. I know that is my plan!

Anne said...

What wonderful gifts for people whose hearts are hurting. You're a good friend.

Ginger Patches said...

Very generous and thoughtful gifts, sure to bring much comfort to your friends.

Karen said...

Wow! You got all of the quilts done. Good job. I really like the masculine looking quilt. So simple but the fabrics make it look cozy. Something you would want to wrap up in. And all from your stash. That couldn't be better.

Love the hug quilts. Especially the masculine one. That is a great pattern!

Nanette Merrill and daughters said...

Of course I love the strip quilt on point. It speaks to me. Love that idea. The other is lovely too. Hope you had a good holiday.

Lynn said...

These quilts turned out so well!! I love the simplicity of them, beautiful quilts that encourage you to use them!!

Nan said...

The hug quilts turned out beautifully!! How could the recipients not love them? The added bonus was using your stash for making these works of heart.

Julia said...

You have touched many hearts with your generosity, and how good was that you used fabric from your stash.

Patti said...

Congratulations -you did it! Maybe not absolutely completely, but close enough as far as I'm concerned. I know the recipients were thrilled beyond words that you took the time and energy to do this for them. Very well done Darlene!
