Today we are linking up with Melinda at West Metro Mommy for Super Saturday Snapshots.
My sister and her husband have been visiting us in Virginia for the last two weeks. My sister and I decided to make a lap quilt for her husband.
I cut out the squares and my sister sewed them together. Teamwork!
Tim chose the pattern that had beer glasses and beer related phrases. We paired it up with coloured blocks that matched.
Tim chose the backing as well. It is a microfleece material. It was fairly easy to sew.
Since we were working together we finished Tim's quilt fairly quickly so we went back to the fabric store to get material for a quilt for my sister Shellie.
She loves Dachshunds so we found a Dachshund fabric and some bright colours to be the solid squares.
The backing for this was a little harder to match but the nice lady at the fabric store found one for us.

They are heading back to Australia today where it is winter so they should get plenty of use out of the quilts for the next month or two.
Do you have a favourite quilt for cold winter days?
