Multi-textured Quilt for Evie (Christmas 2010)

This was my first attempt at making a quilt with different types of fabric throughout.  I used pink silk, and several cotton and flannel fabrics on the top and then I used brown minky on the back.  This was for Josh and Erin's beautiful little girl, Evie.  I also made a little teddy bear out of the brown minky fabric with a little silky pink heart. The bear took a couple of tries but it was worth it in the end.

Minky Blankets for Friends (Christmas 2010)

We fell in love with the feel of some super soft minky fabric and decided to make minky turn blankets for our friends for Christmas.  The slippery quality of the minky added a whole new challenge, but it gave us a chance to improve our skills and make something soft and cuddly for our friends this winter.

These two we made for my husband's Brother and Sister-in-Law. One was Christmas trees and the other was reindeer.  We decided to let them decided who got which one.

We made a snowman one for our friend Tacara.

A Penguin one for Josh and Erin.

And a University of Oregon Ducks blanket for Bryce. (even though we are Beaver fans!)

If you're wondering, we do root for both teams, but we had to take this picture just for fun.

Cabin in the Woods Quilt for Dad Tenner (Christmas 2010)

This was a quilt that we made for my husband's Dad.  I have to let my husband take credit for the majority of the design choices on this quilt because it is definitely a guy's quilt, but he did a great job choosing the fabric and putting it together.  Of course I helped too! :) Perfect for a cabin in the woods or just a lovable hunting family. ...and in a nice warm flannel!

Butterfly Quilt for Mom Tenner (Christmas 2010)

For Christmas, my husband and I decided to make homemade gifts for our friends and family.  This was a quilt that we made for his mom.
