Christmas Raggy Quilts

I finally have found a bit of time to update this blog! It's been a month!! Eeek!
Here are some pics of the raggy quilts I made for my nieces and nephews for Christmas. Each one has a panel cut from a dress that used to belong to my mother (their grandmother) who died in 1992.
This one is for Miss 8 - front (Mum panel on front at bottom) and back

For Miss 6 1/2 - front and back (Mum panel on front in middle)

For Master 4 and Master 2 weeks. Here are the fronts (Mum panel front bottom for Master 4)

And here are the backs - left is Master 2 weeks (Mum panel on the back) and Master 4 is on the right.

I really enjoyed making these - much easier than I thought they would be although my squares don't always line up! It was really meaningful to me as well to include some of Mum's old dress that I have been keeping for 16 years! Now I just have to make a quilt for each of the other nephews/nieces and for my own kids and I'm done! So that's 4 down and 7 to go!!
