Finished For Friday

And just in time for Christmas!
Logan's quilt is laundered and ready to give him tomorrow.
I used color catchers to wash it because I am not good at pre-washing fabrics and I thought it safest. Daniel's quilt bled more color than Logan's, they are different fabric manufacturers but both are black, white and red.
The center is the AZ Cardinals logo I had to draw and applique. Some of the fabrics in the immediate area around it came from a kit from Connecting Threads that was really only wall hanging size, so I purchased additional fabrics and pulled what I could from stash and kept inventing another row of blocks until it was large enough for Logan's bed. It's another one of those quilts that simply evolved, I made it up as I went along!
The backing was pieced from stash, I have made a serious dent in stash of this color-way with five quilts so far this year in red,white and black, and there's enough left for at least another couple of scrappy quilts!
And since no quilt is finished without a label, here it is!

My friend, you never cease to amaze me... Such an artful quilter and now to find out you can freehand draw to boot! Great job on the AZ Cardinal!

I hope you are surrounded by your children and grandchildren, much love and joy for Christmas. We did our traditional Christmas Eve foods and gifts, everyone has headed home and Carol is in her chair all covered up with her blankie, I'm propped up on the love seat and just vegging and visiting on the computer sending out wishes for a wonderful Christmas. Hugs and many blessings to you and yours.
