Quilts for Lorenzo

As Christmas approaches, I thought I would share all the quilts I have made for my nephew.  At 19 years, he's no longer little -- and he's over 6 feet tall.

But as I was looking through my records, I couldn't find photos of all the quilts I've made, so there will have to be a second post someday.

This is the first quilt I ever made.  I took a class at my LQS.  It was a flannel rail fence, tied not quilted.

I remember a hockey quilt, in flannel I think.  I wonder if Lorenzo still has it.  I'll have to get him to pull out all his quilts.  I know there were more than what I'm sharing.

I made a bugs-in-jars quilt.  This was one of my early attempts at free-motion quilting.

And a sports quilt.  He played hockey, basketball, and baseball.  Luckily, hockey only lasted a couple of years.  Even though I only went to a few hockey games, I did not enjoy the cold rink or cranky parents screaming at kids and referees.

This pattern is called Jack's Delight -- Lorenzo's nickname is Jack.

This was a basketball kit.

All my shopping is done, and all the gifts are wrapped.  So I think I will spend some time sewing tonight.

    Congratulations on having all your shopping done and wrapped. :)

  2. Shopping and wrapping done, the payoff is getting to spend time sewing. YES!
    Merry Christmas!
