Celebrating Seven - Day 3 of Christmas in July

>> Sunday, July 27, 2014

This little cutie turns 7 today! 
I made this wallhanging for him as a surprise Christmas gift. 

It was based on his (very detailed) drawing of the train and I used the Scrap Applique Playground book by Kay Mackenzie to inspire the background and make the cute flowers. You can see some other things I made using the book here.

My son is pretty easy to make gifts for - I think I've made him the most quilts of anyone in our house!
This quilt I made for him another Christmas as a surprise - and he didn't like it!!
 It was too big he said:(
(This quilt was a mystery quilt so it was fun for me to make!)

This was the latest quilt I made him - he was happier with the size! The bright blocks were blocks I made with my sister years ago. The back has train fabric and a strip of leftover blocks. This is the side that he has UP most often:)

Most things I make are for family members

Most of the quilts/comforters I've made have been for family but i've also done many a project for volunteer causes. :-) You are such a joyful quilter, Sarah!

I can not believe that he is that old already. Happy Birthday!!!
(My youngest is Sam also, but Samantha LOL )
I make quilts mostly for family and friends. I have also made quilts for Quilts of Valor, Hospice, and NICU for premies. And of course pillowcases for kids with cancer.
