done been given gone

an update...

three of the tea towel quilts were finished in time for christmas and have gone to live in their new homes...

Angela's Aspens was the first to go to its Forever Home...
 Angela's Aspens
here's a picture of Mrs. Moth (and LuLu) opening the box...
 hey!!! what's so doggone funny?!?
i was kinda worried when i saw the expression on her face till i remembered that i had folded it with the backing side up...
oh yeah ... hunky construction guys
i figure that if the focus of a quilt is an ooooooold tea towel, there oughta be some kinda compensation, right?!?

anywho, next to go was Liberty Bell...
 Liberty Bell ... that's right, i was FINALLY able to name SOMETHING Liberty Bell
and its new owner likes the backing best, too...
hot chicks on fast cars ... in red, white and blue
which wasn't a big surprise ... the cars don't match up, but i don't think Earth Science minds too much...

and then and Vice Versa went to live elsewhere...
 Happiness is Love ... and Vice Versa
 i hit a home run with the backing of this one, too...
remember these guys?!?
because it turns out that Mrs. Myson wanted a red, black and white quilt ... of course, if i'd known that to start with, the front wouldn't have been so very, very blue...

the Plan at the beginning of the year was to have all of the tea towel quilts done by Christmas ... sigh ... Auntia's was delayed because i had no clue of what to do with this...
hmmmm...
till inspiration FINALLY reared its ugly head a couple of months ago (more on that some other time) ... and Michael Myson's needed some extra special quilting and hasn't made it back from Liz the Quilting Wizard ... speaking of Liz, she did a phenomenal job quilting all three of these quilts - aspen branches on Angela's Aspens, eagles on Liberty Bell, and girly swirls on and Vice Versa... 

and now...

on to next year's Plan...

Good job on all three! I still haven't sent you that calendar I found but I think it's just like the third quilt.

Brilliant! You have done really really good with these......using a tea towel from their birth year was a stroke of genius.

Special thoughtful gifts! These turned out wonderful. Bet the recipients were over the moon.
