I have never been an on demand quilter. I don't do many baby quilts, because I want to work on what I want to work on, when I want to work on it. So of my 10 grandchildren only 3 of them have quilts made by Grandma. The sad thing is, is that it is not even the oldest 3. I know this is a tragedy and my DIL's remind me of it all the time. Just kidding. I have quilts in mind for all of them, and more than half of the remaining quilts to be made are on my UFO/WIP/PHD list .
I am hoping to get most of them to my 2011 Finishes list, and the current WIP onto the February finish list. My #2 grandson, who is 8 years old, will be getting this quilt on his 9th Birthday. That is coming up on March 15th. I am really good if I have a deadline, but it has to be one that I give myself.
The fabrics and the embroidered planes look more black & gray than the blue they really are. The only truly black fabric is the sashing. Each plane or flying machine, is a different blue and there are 6 of them. They are all done. There are 6 pieced blocks and 3 of those are done and the others finished tonight. It is my goal to have the top finished and loaded onto the mid-arm frame by Sunday afternoon.
I think I can do it!
Then on to the next grandchild UFO. I am really trying to be a better grandma. But they won't quit having babies. We have 2 more on the way, one in April and one in July. Their baby quilts won't be finished either, but they will get a larger quilt if they have to wait a few years.
