College Kid Quilts

This fall, I have both kids away at college – my daughter, a freshman in her first dorm at UCLA, and my son, in his first house as ajunior at University of Puget Sound. Both will have new quilts for their rooms!

Be Positive (Proton)

Started in June, this was my first entirely hand quilted quilt. Made from scraps leftover from our new queen-sized bed quilt, I had fun whipping it together, but it took months to quilt (and a lot of binge watching TV!) I love the look, but think next time if I’m going to do all that work I should use thread that makes sure you can see it! I originally called it “Be Positive” but renamed it “Proton” in honor of my son who is a physics major in college.

Woodruff and Long Cousins

One of my first quilting attempts about 5 years ago from a photo much older than that. The picture is of my kids (the two little ones) with my brother’s boys on a family trip to Lake Tahoe. I loved creating the shapes of their little bodies, clothing and hair. The two middle boys are now well over 6 feet tall and both taller than the oldest on the left. And my daughter is now a tall beauty herself! I gave this to my mom, the “Gran Gran” and “DooDa” of all four kids.

Galaxies

Still working on this one – I’m hand quilting it (my first attempt at hand vs machine quilting.) I used scrap slivers from another project. When it came together it reminded me of the NASA photos of space, hence the name.
