August Charming Girls Club Finishes

The blue quilt top blanket (started back in April or May) was made for one of my grandson and then his little brothers (the twins) asked where their blankets were. They're a year younger and I had planned to make them each one for Christmas but because they were feeling left out I had to go to work on theirs now since they made me feel pretty guilty.

I quickly started on the second one (the green one) and finished it in about three days, complete with his nickname embroidered in the center.

I'm currently working on the last one for the other twin. I don't think I'll get it done till next week, but I'll give it a good try. The front is almost complete but I still need to add the batting and the back. We'll see how far I get. I keep getting side tracked and working on smaller projects.

(Check out the orbit in the picture with my grandson. I've heard of people finding them in their pictures but this is a first for me.)

I'm also finished the red lap quilt for myself. My legs are always cold. I'll get a lot of use out of it when we sit outside in the evening. Thanks to the CGQC I've completed a number of projects that I had put aside.


  1. Wow! You have been busy. Very productive. Tell me what is the orbit? I have been getting those a lot lately.

  2. Great quilts! The look on your grandson's face is precious! You've been really busy, and the results are wonderful!

  3. really went above and beyond. I'm lucky to get one thing finished.

  4. Beautiful quilts especially the red one .

  5. Way to go Cora! That's a lot of finishes for the month of August. You sew girl!
