One of my hobbies is quilting, but I really haven’t been able to do much!  And I’ve never even actually "quilted" anything.  As preparation for our Pennsylvania trip I had the older kids try to piece a small quilt together.  Here are some pictures. 

Two of the kids did "nine-patch."

My oldest wanted to do a "crazy quilt."

When I graduated from college (in 1995) I started this quilt sampler.  I doesn’t have any filling or a back on it yet.  It’s all sewed by hand.

Here are two quilts I made for my sons.  The first is a solid fabric that looks like a pieced-together quilt.  I just sewed the top to a solid blue bottom with the filling inside.  I tied red embroidery floss to keep it together.

This one was much more difficult to make.  Each square was sewed by machine to its backing with the filling inside.  Then all the squares were sewed together and I cut the extra seam allowance as fringe.

    Great job. Quilting is one of those things I'd like to do "someday".
