55 - Shhhhhhh Cousin Mary has no clue this is coming

She's been on my list FOREVER!  And I was in the mood to do another Happy Scrappy.  So, shhhhhhhh, don't tell her, because she has no idea this is coming!  Hope to get it quilted, bound and labeled by Valentine's Day!  I'm so excited!

A Happy Scrappy with bright yellow cornerstones :)

I'm mailing it tomorrow!  So excited.  I hope she has years and years of cozy cuddles in it!  She is such a beloved cousin.

54 - Katy finally gets a Happy Scrappy

Katy has been so sweet and patient!  Her older siblings got quilts before she was born.  And her sister Sarah just came and made her own quilt last year when she turned 13.  Kind Katy hasn't complained.  But when Brownie Katy came up and shared her Girl Scout experiences with Olivia and the new DAISY Troop... well I just HAD to get a Happy Scrappy Quilt quickly done for Katy!

51 - Dan's Quilt

Dan's quilt is almost ready!  And it has plenty of "blue" just like Dan requested :)
Robin, I feel highly privileged to be the recipient of the wonderful quilt that arrived yesterday. AL (Auntie Linna) pointed out, and it is quite true, that the color selection seems to be perfectly attuned to my likes. I don’t know how you do it, but you have “gotten in synch with the vibes”. Thank you very much from my heart.

50 - Sally Came Back!

I was so encouraged to see that Sally caught the quilter bug and that I didn't scare her away with all my instructions.  She made this gorgeous quilt all by herself!  I was so impressed.  And she said she is making an exception and allowing me to take her picture.  Thanks Sally!  You are a very good sport.

48 - Enza, the UMCI Mascot Quilt

Elsa is the UMCI Mascot.  He is the most gentle, well behaved golden lab ever!  And he keeps everyone company on Dad's office floor.  When he was a puppy, he was inside his master's cubicle.  Now that he's full grown, he sleeps in the hallway.  Now he will sleep in royal style:  on his very own UMCI quilted mat!

Woof woof!

47 - Penni's October Quilt

I'm on an "ORANGE-THREAD-ROLL!  Gotta hurry!  It's already October 10th!  Penni made this quilt several years ago, and always wanted it quilted.  I'm so proud of myself... I taught myself how to quilt pumpkins, spiders, ghosts (sorta) and spider webs.  Fun!

46 - Emily's Baby Stella Quilt

Auntie Emily is excited about her soon-to-be-born niece, Stella!  And found the perfect fabric to delight Stella, Mama Amy and Daddy Neal.  And wasn't it amazing that the two projects Emily and I are both doing... needed orange thread?  Serendipity!

45 - Kuzzin John & Karlie

I've been wanting to "quilt" our dearest of dear cousins, John & Karlie, since they moved into their cozy, comfy family home that we all love so much.  It is fun to snuggle up in their family room where you can really, really relax and "feel at home."  And, of course, it needs at least one good Kuzzy Robbie Quilt to fight over!  So, scrappy it is, and with Karlies blue (for her eyes) and Johns orange-crush favorite color!  This is fun!

44 - Emily's Happy Scrappy

Between Emily and I, we can really keep the old Gammill hoppin!  Isn't this Happy Scrappy adorable?  So bright and cheery!  Emily is trying the "channel-lock" quilting method; straight horizontal lines going across the quilt.  Really fast and easy and gratifying!  And cute!
