More completions

Well, these aren't the quilts I'm most proud of, to say the least, but they are completed.

First is the next Project Linus quilt. I guess it's readily apparent that I have kind of enjoyed doing nine patch lately.

Next is a John Deere quilt. This one has a little story. You may recall that we went to Nebraska to help celebrate my uncle's 80th birthday in July. This same uncle has always been a farmer, and the table centerpieces, as well as the decorations, were John Deere based. It was so fitting for him. When we left my aunt's house, she gave to me a piece of John Deere fabric that had been used on a table. I decided then that I would get more and use it in a quilt. I started the quilt, and then about three weeks ago we learned that my uncle is facing some very serious health issues, so I hurried to get it completed and sent to him. It isn't the greatest quilt in the world, but hopefully he will enjoy it and know I love him.

Last is another crocheted towel. These make great TV watching or car riding projects, since I always like to be doing something.


  1. Oh Donna the John Deer is fantastic!! You know he will LOVE it!! And believe me when I say...that's the best looking JD quilt I've seen!! lol
    I'll keep your uncle in my prayers.

  2. I agree..the John Deere quilt is wonderful and I'm sure he will feel all the love that went into it. He will be in our prayers as well.
    I'd forgotten that you crochet as well. Great looking towel!

  3. Hi Donna, I love visiting your blog and seeing what you've accomplished-much more than I have. I love the John Deere quilt-how touching. I've seen the fabric and thought about making one for my two grandsons but I now have two more baby quilts to do, so they will have to wait. I know the quilt will bring much comfort(I made my sister a chemo quilt)and he'll feel so loved by it.
    Have a great week!
