TGIFFriday - Christmas Edition

Happy Finished Friday!!!

I am so excited to have THREE finishes today!! I worked on them in secret, and even kept it from my husband... which is a real challenge!!

I first thought about giving them as Christmas Presents.... but realized that they would look better all during the Christmas Season. BUT!! I had one small problem!  One of my kids lives out of state and we had to wait for him to get home.

He thought I was really excited to see him, but really.... it was all about me! I wanted them to open their quilts SO I COULD SHARE THEM on my blog.... ha ha ha

So here you go:

My Kids!!  ( and a little bit of mess in the background... I wanted to show real life you know - so you all wouldn't think I was perfect ......  snort snort)




Tada!! Their Christmas Quilts!!

I chose fabrics that they liked, and a theme that kinda represents this year.  Each one of them had fleece on the back - and I forgot to show you that!!




There was  Diagonal, Computers and Sharks on the fleece - so you can imagine it!

and they already covered a kid! Ha!

Now link up your latest finish ( or almost finish ) and let us see whats up!
Please use the direct link so we can visit your post directly

Those are AWESOME!!! I really like that you made the SAME quilt in 3 different colorways. What lucky boys you have!

Wow, how wonderful. Three great boys and three wonderful quilts. You're amazing.

These quilts are amazing. I love the pattern. Please share the pattern name because this quilt needs to be at the top of my 2019 quilts to make. Handsome young men. Merry Christmas.

You did a terrific job of keeping them secret. Looks like the guys love them! Merry Christmas!

Wonderful quilts! I'm still in awe of the fact that my baby boy has grown into a man--and you have *three* of them to be awed by. So happy to see your family, and have you share the secret sewing project with us. Thanks so much for hosting TGIFF during this busy time of year.

Great looking quilts and recipients too!

I LOVE these! Did you use a pattern or is this an original?

Kate said...

Love the quilts! If that picture of them with the gifts wasn't on your blog, I wouldn't have recognized them as being your boys. The sure grow up fast!

Snowcatcher said...

What adorable photos of your boys! Lovely quilts, too! Merry Christmas!

Marcia Stone said...

Love the quilting as well as the Quilts.

Anja @ Anja Quilts said...

What a great design. Is it a pattern? or did you create it? Merry Christmas.

I loved your three tree quilts as well as reading about your family.

Angela Neff said...

I think one of these trees is in my future! Thanks for sharing the pattern. What a good looking bunch you have!

Creative people are not the neatest people. I think your son's loved their quilts. Hope you had a nice Christmas with your family.

Theresa Morgan said...
