I have had these tops in storage for years...it was time to get them finished. The one set on point will be added to the youngest grandson's wedding box. The other is for friends house warming gift when we visit on Thanksgiving.

I love them! I am currently in a hexi frame of mind. Those are inspiring.
Wow PQ, you have been busy! The baby quilt will be great memories for mom...all the different fabrics. I know where to send my machine when it needs a check up! Redoing a rocker is not easy! You're brave! Just think if, we all pooled our talents what could be accomplished!!!!
I made so much salsa last year...I get this summer off!!!!
Awesome quilts, Pam! Just the kind I like best! What a great idea to start your grandsons’ wedding boxes now. Sound like they’ll be full of treasures by the time the boys are ready to appreciate them.
The keepsake boxes are such a great idea! Way to go, Pam!
Great finishes, Pam! I LOVE THEM BOTH! Those are my kind of quilts.
I'm working on a baby quilt for the newest great-niece. (Heavens! That makes me sound old.) I used to make Mom's scrub tops when she worked in the doctors' office, and this baby quilt will be made from those fabric scraps. Baby's momma is also an RT and this little girl shares great-grandma's middle name.
I've also been restoring/cleaning a Singer 15-91 from the late 40's/early 50's for a friend's mom. (yes, I was a last resort. She couldn't find anyone in the area who works on old Singers anymore.) It was not my first vintage machine cleaning, but was the first time the motor needed to be taken apart for new wires. Thankfully, DH is good about helping with that type of work. I'm also grateful for on-line tutorials. They are a life-saver. She purrs along beautifully. She should be going to her new home on Monday.
Helped a niece reupholster a vintage rocking chair. It went pretty well, but again, I have good resources for help. She's thrilled with the results.
And this is canning season. Got your 5-alarm salsa made yet?
Thanks ladies...it feels good to have them completed. I bought big keepsake boxes that preserve things. I have put things, I think each may like. Each has a quilt, afghan that my grandmother made, a book that I wrote about our lake. Collectibles that they have given us, when they were little with a story written about it.Photos that we are in with each one. We keep two ongoing photo sticks to add photos to outings we shared. We'll have it put to music before we give it to them. Jewelry that hopefully their wives will appreciate. A Christmas tree skirt....We plan on giving them their boxes, when they are married and settled. We only have two grandsons, so easy to keep tract of. They are 12 and 9 so those boxes will be full by the time they get them...lol!!!!
Beautiful! So, do you have wedding boxes started for each grand? Add to it over time? I'm curious because it seems like an amazing plan.
What a generous house warming gift. They are so fortunate to have such a wonderful friend!
Stunning as usual. I have never done hexi's but it looks like a lot of work! Enjoy the rest of summer. I imagine your weather is like ours and we have been baking in incredible heat. Thank goodness for a/c and iced water!
You did a beautiful job on these quilts. What makes us put unfinished quilts away before we get them done? I have just one I started 4 years ago. Maybe it's time I finished it. The house warming quilt will really be appreciated when they receive it.
