Quilters Galore

My plot to turn everyone around me into a quilter is working!  Here's a charm quilt that my niece made for me.  She didn't know what to call it at first, but the name fits perfectly. It is quite charming.

Remember the last quilt I started? With our first student, I tried to keep her constantly busy, but that wore me out, and probably wore her out as well.  With our second student, I learned that it is probably best to leave the evenings free and flexible.  The day before yesterday, we were watching television, and she was looking bored, so I brought out my treasure map quilt.  I got the idea from the Whip Up book.  I asked her if she wanted to add something to the quilt, and she said yes.  She made the skull.  My daughter didn't want anything to do with it.  I asked IU if she wanted to make anything else, making sure she understood she didn't have to.  She decided to make something even more elaborate and intricate.  Isn't it fantastic?
