Belated Christmas Gifts

I have been slacking a lot in my blogging lately. Mostly because I have been lazy. I guess I am just so glad that the holidays are over and I don't "have" to finish something, so I have slacked.

Here is a quilt that I made for my MIL and FIL, well the help from the whole family. I was going to do this for Mother's day and Father's day but didn't get it done in time. So it turned into a Christmas gift. I think you can tell from the pictures that they were very happy with the finished quilt.
There is everyone's hand print, children and grandchildren. Each has their name and birthday underneath.
I appliqued them all around, as well as the tree. 
At the last minute I decided to add their names at the bottom. 
I was very excited to see their reaction, and I think from here you can see that my MIL is VERY happy!
My FIL was happy too, he was just really concentrating! 
There we go, he is now smiling! 
I had also made my mother and father one as well. I gave it to her at Thanksgiving, but since my siblings and I are a lot younger it was a much smaller quilt! As soon as I get pictures from my sister I will post them! 

I was just surfing the internet (google) and found it. Thought it was a GREAT idea and ran with it!
